      Hi Urmo,

      Preflop: If we are not really sure if he is a fishy player or just a regular I don't mind calling and playing postflop.

      Flop: If we raise his pot size bet we can make it something like $6.5-$7. But the question is, against an unknown, what can we expect him to shove over us? I'd say, considering the flop texture and preflop play his range could be something like AK-A2hh, TT+, some 88/44, maybe even Tx. As a side note, considering he 3-bet and pot this flop we (theoretically) don't have much fold equity.

      So the question is, how much equity do we have against the above range? OR the range you'd give him? And I'd calculate based on 0 FE and work back from there (see how much FE we actually need to make the raise +ev).

      As played, considering he dropped his bet size so much on the turn it makes me think that he might not have such a great hand (unless he hit QT/QQ so he doesn't need as much protection) so I would be tempted to raise/go with the hand (we now beat his NFDs)
