      Hello TheWinnerTakesItAll,

      Preflop: What's the reason for 3betting in first place here?

      As played
      Postflop: Seems to be fine, I like your play postflop.

      Best Regards.

      ATs looks to strong to fold vs CO range and I don't wanna call and play oop, so decided to 3bet and take down pot pre flop, if he calls I still can hit a lot of good flops with this hand.

      What's the purpose of the 3bet if you most likely just getting called from better Ax hands? :) Of course the idea isn't wrong to just 3bet there but also you have to understand why you doing it. Not just hoping that he folds the hand.
