      Preflop: Hero is UTG with 6 6
      Hero raises to $0.60, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.60, SB folds, BB calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.90) 4 6 J (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1.20, BTN calls $1.20, BB raises to $4, Hero?????


      I'm pretty new to the table and this may be one of my first opens. I haven't made any crazy moves yet but I am playing with these same guys on another table where they may have seen me do some aggro stuff.

      So a standard open with 6's and I get called in 2 spots by a reg on the button and a recreational player in the BB. A great flop and I cbet my standard size as I would with my whole range here, reg calls and BB raises. Is the reraise by me the optimal play here now? I really wanted to just flat and let the button come along too. Is that too risky or a viable play here. Obviously it's very likely that at least one of them has a :heart: draw. Would a flat call here be a terrible play? Let me know what you think.

      Thanks

      I think folding is the only terrible play here. :tongue:

      When comparing calling or 3betting you have to take into account how much extra you get from weaker compared to how much you lose in a possible cooler scenario that doesn't happen like being vs 44 here. Would you tilt if you call and then have to fold your hand at some point? Are you prepared to accept losing the pot more often to get more money in the long run?

      I think calling is definitely a nice option because you can still bet if BB was bluffing flop so you don't miss a street of value on the turn (it doesn't check around) and BU can shove a flushdraw he initially just flatted with imo. It basically lets people make more mistakes than 3betting but you have to accept you lose the pot more often when you call than when you 3bet.
