      Is it OK to call preflop because it's just a min3bet?

      Yea, it's ok. Odds are good enough to call it + you have position. Great flop for you, his sizing said that he has a strong hand and will give you his stack :) Well played

      With that minbet he gave you great odds to suck-out there, so calling once is ok. If you'd had only Q on the flop, I had folded. His min-3-bet range is so polarized to stronger hands that there's very few hands you could beat. His worst hands would be sth. like KQ+.

      But as played, well done!

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      As long he is giving that good odds I am not planning to fold it either. Postflop is pretty standard but though I wouldn't advice to open that loose from MP2, might put yourself into tough spots.

      Best Regards.
