      Hi All,

      This was one of my biggest losing pots yesterday. Just thought I'd get your opinions on what I could have done differently.

      I had pretty much no history against villain (23 hands)

      Should I have folded when he 3bet me all in on the flop?

      I didn't really know what to do here.

      Thanks!

      Hello sp3d01,

      You are most likely going to be against a trap here in that kind of spot, especially if a guy donks so small and then even comes over the top. I'd most likely raise the flop smaller like $0,40 and then even leave the pot alone.

      Best Regards.
