      23/20/40 and 100ATS.

      preflop
      Should I resteal?
      against 100ATS villain or 25 PER villain, I would value 3bet but it seems to
      valiance.

      flop
      On this board, he seemed not to have a hand which he can continue after raise.
      And if called, I used fold equity.

      Hi Gonchan,

      Poker is a game of variance so using it as an argument to NOT do a maximum +EV move is not what you should be doing

      I 3bet this for value against this particular person. If you call preflop, you just allow him to bluff you out of the pot + It requires you to do a lot more thinking

      Best regards,
      Gerv
