      The type of reg we play against is very important.

      If he is passive, as most of them are, I would consider folding the turn to his double barrel. The 3 is not a good barrel card and since he opened in MP his range is stronger.

      Otherwise calling turn is fine (but as a default folding is better at these limits).

      Preflop I prefer to 3-bet fold my hand if we play against a tighter opener since we won't be able to show a huge profit calling hands like these (especially if we play them passive postflop when we dont hit).
