      Hi,

      I would prefer 3-betting that spot for value to 0.18$. I have to fold to 4-bet, but I would isolate co raise and very likely take pot down pre-flop or c-bet on the flop (also if I hit J, A or better I´m fine playing for stacks)

      best regards,

      We are behind against his calling range. He is not just stealing, because there is one limper already.
      With a 3b we isolate ourselves against better hands. It's -EV, or?

      consider his stack size (60bb) I think he would easily call our 3-bet with a lot of boardway hands or pp-s that he would give up if he misses. 3BB raise isn´t really monster and since we have very likely best hand I would prefer take advantage (if we call we often have to fold if we don´t hit any pair or draw). Also if you only 3-bet QQ+/AK then other players have very easy to play against us- they would fold all everything worse and only call for small pp-s to hit sets. If your 3-bet range is a lot wider, then you get a lot more action if you also have monsters.

      best regards,
