      Preflop: Hero is BB with T:spade: T:club:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.15, SB folds, Hero raises to $0.55, BTN raises to $1.10, Hero folds

      here the opp looks tight but he has High ATs but fold a lot to 3bet what is the best call or 3bet ? i like the 3bet cause we are OOP + we get the inititiave but i dont know if we get called by worst maybe AQ calling

      Hi Noulispa,

      This is a perfect example to go with the ATs hand that we just evaluated.

      In this situation I would call more than 3bet because our hand has more value postflop (implied and normal). Also we don't have a blocker and if we don't hit the flop (7/8 times) we won't have as many backdoors/overs to barrel with. So it's harder to play.

      We also just turned a super nice hand into a bluff because we have to fold to 4-bets and if he calls we are not much ahead (on average).
