      Hello Farmarchist,

      Rather 3bet it preflop than play the hand being OOP and also most likely in multiway pot. Do you think you have a huge edge on the MP?

      Best Regards.

      I find it hard to calculate how big my edge is so if I already can't answer that question then my edge won't big too big :P

      So which should be more easier line then to take? What do you think?

      Correct, do you think there might be any other reasons behind it?

      I have no other reasons beside:

      - 3way pot OOP w/ QKo isn't a great spot.
      - We don't have good postflop stats on MP and thus no edge
      - It plays a lot easier, he also folds enough to 3bets.

      BB so far has had also 10% 3bet which could also indicate that he is squeeze-happy, so we may easily just Call/Fold in those spots.

      That's what you should be also doing during your play, the higher you move the bigger the chance is that somebody behind you squeezes.
