      Why didn't you 3bet preflop? You don't want multiway with this kind of hand.

      As played: sizings ok, nothing to change

      Forgot to add that MP1 was playing very tight- 8/5. Didn't fancy raising in case i got 4bet. At the very best i would be coin flipping against him.

      Am i wrong when i say its okay to 3bet here? because if he 4bet then just fold, and if hes so tight he will sometimes fold also... I think you aslo should bet the flop, but im not 100% sure whats right :f_p:

      Both options have some pros and cons.

      3bet is much easier, you know exactly where are you with your hand, but you invest more money than when you call. But as I said OOP without initiative is not the best idea :)

      Hello DrRaab,

      Preflop: Both options are possible. Might be even sometimes safer to just 3bet it and take down the pot right here. Cause if the guy 4bets you he will very often have you strongly beat which means we could easily 3bet/Fold. It's just tougher to play OOP those hands and especially if you lack of postflop understanding.

      As played
      Postflop: Assuming that we will see very often Check behinds there I would start betting right on the flop and maybe even protecting my hand. :) But otherwise seems to be fine.

      Best Regards.
