      My main reason for playing 3b/fold preflop is that I had a note on villain to say that he has called 3b's IP w/ QJo/66. However this was an auto-note from PT4. Is this good enough reason to start 3b'ing QKo for value here. I obviously don't expect him to 4b me with worse though.

      3bet looks good here as villain can call with all dominated hands (KJ/QJ etc) and it is great to have initiative + we have blockers to big value hands. vs 4b it is an easy fold. i would 3bet a bit smaller (20c) to keep a ton of his weaker/dominated holdings in.

      really like the way you played this hand :)

      Hello muel294,

      Seems to be fine, another option would be just to Call and play postflop and keep his range wide. :)

      Best Regards.
