      He seems reg, stats look solid, he didn't do some strange plays. But he was very very aggresive. I called 3-bet pre, i bet the flop, i was quite happy with the hand, i got reraised, so i got confused but i call, the river was perfect for me, he jams, and then i decided fo fold, i had a felling that i'm behaind. I was on a realy bad run couple of days, so i think that influence my play a lot. Should i close my eyes and call? Today i have a felling that he might even bluff me and i think calling is better i would need a 30% equitiy to call.

      Preflop: My suggestion is to play as face up as possible versus unknown 3-bettors. The fact that he looks regish does not really make him any less unknown.

      This means that preflop I would either fold or 4-bet bluff with my 2 blockers.

      As played it doesn't make sense to call the flop ck/raise, which looks strong, just to fold on a blank card that actually helps us. If we think our hand is best on the flop then it's also best on the turn.

      So if we call flop we are going with the hand, especially now that he has less than a PSB left (you need <30% equity although we can't call just for the flush since the FD is only 18%).
