      Opponent stats 27/19 AF:1,5 fold to 3bet:0 WTSD:40 W$SD:33 after 62 hands.

      What is better here calling or shoving?

      Personally I'm just calling here. Villain can't have an OESD with those stats after calling a 3-bet, so the only draws he can have are double-hearts draws. Considering a lot of his range is PP's as well, XhYh hands make up very little of his range. I'd call: There's no need to protect your hand here. Plus, he's likely to bet 3 streets with his worse overpairs, but he might fold to a shove on the flop with them.

      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      As long it's a 3bet pot you could consider calling the flop to let him continue with weaker range on the turn but overall I doubt that it's going to be a huge mistake.

      Just he will have really tough time to continue TT/JJ in his spot after 3bet+raise on the flop.

      Best Regards.
