      Villain is 23/16 over 31 hands.'

      PF: Villain only has 50bb and I'm not for the idea of 3-bet/Calling against him. And if he's positionally adept, I think I'm most racing against his UTG range.

      Flop: The flop only gives one draw. If he bets bigger like $0.25c, I will just call and continue to let him bet his entire bluffing and value range. And put in a raise either on Turn or River to try and get stacks in depending on the board.

      As played, I raised on the Flop for Value since he bet so small. When he 3-bets, I decided he's most likely gonna go broke for his hand, so I just call and let him bet himself since I'm in position.

      Is there a difference if I 4-bet and get it in instead? I actually think I'll look really strong and he might just decide to fold his weaker Kings and smaller pairs like TT-QQ.

      I think we have an easy 3bet/go broke with AK for 50bb.

      On the flop I like raising and when he 3bets I'd go broke.
      I don't think he would 3bet QQ-TT here, and also if he 3bets Kx here he is definitely not going to fold if we shove.
