      PokerStars - $0.02 NL (6 max) ZOOM - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      Hero (BTN): $2.02
      SB: $2.17
      BB: $6.03 (3-bet 50% (only 1/2 times) but this time would make it 2/3) only 14hands but c-bet 0/1 times, so knowing he won't fire 100% is good.
      UTG: $3.92
      MP: $2.00
      CO: $5.59

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has Q:diamond: A:club:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.06, Hero calls $0.06, fold, BB raises to $0.22, CO calls $0.16, Hero ?

      PF: I feel as if BB is more than likely a good player if he holds 300BB and doesn't rebuy for 100BB to save his winnings, therefore he is capable of 3-betting me light.

      I plan on calling his 3-bet as long as CO doesn't 4-bet.

      My plan for the flop is bet some boards if I feel both players miss and consequently check to me and also bet if I feel I have the best of it when an A or Q comes.

      Am I calling the 3-bet too light here, and what if it was suited instead?

      Your thought process is wrong imo. You make assumptions that BB is 3betting light because he is 300bb deep?. The other thing is you have no sample on his 3bet. Then you have to think what is co range.

      I think the best play is here to call pre, you are in position and you ahead of co range.

      Hello Raknyo,

      Calling wouldn't make sense cause you are putting yourself into a lot of trouble postflop once you hit your pair. Never even know where you stand. If you assume that BB is squeezing loose then just 4bet it and take down the pot.

      Best Regards.
