      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with Q :spade: A :spade:
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.35, Hero raises to $1.35, 1 fold, BTN calls $1

      Flop: ($2.80) 5 :diamond: T :club: A :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.90, BTN folds

      The questions here are as follows:
      1) when I 3Bet a hand like this preflop for value, am I going broke on any flop that I hit? Or is it opponent–dependent?
      2) if my cBet gets called on the flop, am I pushing any turn?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Obviously those questions you are asking is hard to answer by default. There might be plays where we don't go broke, there might be plays where we don't even CB the flop for value but instead turn our hand into bluff-catcher. Don't search for easy and simple play it poker, it's always "DEPENDS".

      Do you think you are getting called from the opponent on any turn with worse range? :) What's the purpose of 3betting then if you don't do it for value?

      Best Regards.
