      I wasn't too sure here - he's playing 21/9 in 33 hands and this is his first 3-bet. I'm gonna be OOP against a full-stack and proper 3B size, so I just fold.

      To put this hand in context, I 3-bet AA the previous hand to win the pot, so I don't know if he thinks I'm being a smartie. Either way, it's a strong play.

      Hello philhellmutt,

      The hand sample is way too small to base on any lines here. Though if you assume that he is 3betting rather nitty and has been playing this way then sure folding is the safest option.

      His 3bet size is also towards stronger that might be also a sign of him having a hand. But I wouldn't say that it would be a huge mistake if you would go for just 4bet and get it in cause clearly he is also doing it against CO from BTN which is looser range.

      Best Regards.
