      If you are getting 3bet a lot you should obviously begin flatting with these types of hands, especially 3 handed. The real question is does he normally 3bet to 6x and then pot the flop??

      Your flop play can never be too bad with flush draw in 3bet pot. Theoretically though, if you have no fold-equity, and your opponent has a value range of TT+, AJo+, ATs+ you are actually just shipping the rest of your stack in as a slight dog.

      If you have fold equity the play is great. Either way your are going to lose your stack, because even if he directly shoves on the flop you only need about 40% equity to make the call and vs that value range above you have 44% equity. However, maybe once in a while he shuts down and you end up seeing your draw a lot cheaper by flatting. (Only applies if you don't have fold-equity on flop).

      The reason why I mentioned it is typically I wouldn't expect to have fold-equity when opponent 3bets to 6x and pots flop. You flopped nice in this case....what is your plan on a whole variety of other flops when you whiff?

      i agree on not having fold equity here, his raise looks value heavy and his pot bet on the flop looks like hes trying to get the stacks in asap.

      honestly i didnt have a plan on flops i miss. guess i was tilting vs this guy, saw a pretty hand and decided to stand.

      Hi Gxtwo,

      Preflop: Considering his 3-bet is so large I don't like the call. He made it more than 6x.

      Flop: Big 3-bet, followed by pot size cbet, do we really think we have FE? Probably never.

      Personally I'd still fold preflop here and switch tables. There's no reason to sit down with a guy that 3-bets you a lot on your left. Your chance to tilt increases a lot and your advantage is not that great.
