      Hello, I don't usually play so deep stacked but I'd just won a big pot. Anyways my 3bet is pretty standard and then a bet for value on the flop and villain check raises. If I wasn't so deep stacked I'd be inclined to go broke or call. Being deep stacked though there is potential for it to get quite messy so not really sure what to do here.

      Hello seanspurs87,

      Against his bigger raise even I'd be rather willing to leave the pot alone. Doubt that he is raising very loose here whilst you also have the A + his raise is bigger. Therefore rather leave it for him.

      Going broke is out of question here, what we could consider doing is Calling and reevaluating the turn.

      Best Regards.
