      2 folds, CO raises to $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.10, 1 fold, CO calls $0.80

      Flop: ($2.30) K :heart: T :club: 6 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.50, Hero folds

      May small suited Ax hands be 3Bet OOP vs a guy about whose 3Bet-calling or 4Betting tendencies we know relatively little? Or would it be better to observe his game a little more and play with a value range in the beginning (at least OOP)? Or at least test him out at first with a hand that is not dominated as often (SCs, small PPs?)

      I think Axs is fine to balance out your 3-bet range. You can´t really call these hands, so it is either 3-bet or fold from SB. Mostly it depends on the game dynamic- if you have little or no fold equity then best is just cut our your semibluffs and rather 3-bet for value broadway hands and 66+ If played would often fold then imo top 30% are fine to 3-bet that spot, that would also include sc-s and Axs hands. Small pp-s I would mostly call, although again if player would mostly raise/fold I think you can also mix it up.

      Postflop c/f seems reasonable. If I had one spade on the flop I would c-bet myself.

      best regards,
