      Hero (BTN): $10.00 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,6, Hands: 56532
      SB: $10.62 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 17, 3B: 4, AF: 5,5, Hands: 171
      BB: $4.24 - VPIP: 44, PFR: 14, 3B: 0, AF: 6,5, Hands: 64
      UTG: $10.00 - VPIP: 10, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1,5, Hands: 51
      CO: $11.07 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 14, 3B: 8, AF: 0,0, FoldTo3Bet: 100(1), Hands: 35

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with A :club: J :spade:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.30, Hero raises to $1, 2 folds, CO calls $0.70

      Flop: ($2.15) 4 :diamond: 5 :diamond: 7 :heart: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $1.20, CO raises to $2.80, Hero folds

      1) Can I 3bet this hand with BB having such an inconvenient stack size?
      2) Does the cBet make sense? I expect to fold out AQ, AK, maybe even some broadways, if he is calling with them. But then again I have no idea what his calling range preflop could be, and he could just as well have a stronger range here and I would just be better off checking behind and taking a free card.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Yes you can, although I don't really like the CB in those situations but rather instead just Check it behind. If he has a tighter play-style then his calling range will mainly contain of PPs.

      Best Regards.
