      villain 28/14 af 3.0 12.5(3bet) 54hands

      I think this can be considered a clear mistake, my decision here was both emotional and based on bad reads, just because he had 12.5 3bet in 54 hand i assumed that he is getting out of line.

      It was Bu vs Sb so after i did call the 3bet i though there is no folding with TP on flop in 3bet pot and went with it not thinking much at all about his possible range... because he 3bet a few times in 50 hands i just assumed to be wide witch might contain worst Ax and KQ fd type of hands.

      Overall what do you think about the idea that it is a necessity to gobroke with TP in 3bet pots?

      Quite an interesting situation here.

      Preflop your play is good here.

      Overall there is no necessity to go broke with TP in 3bet pots every time.
      For example, I'd be much more inclined to call him down on three streets rather than to stack of against his check/raise here.
      Most common mistake on this limit is that most of the people don't trus the check/raises. The truth is that very few people do it as a bluff and you are most likely to end up against a better hand here in 95% of the time in my opinion.
      So, unless you've seen him playing weak hands like that it's an easy fold.
      Also you should keep in mind that at the micros people doesn't really follow a pattern a lot so the fact that he did check/raise with KQ here once doesn't necessarily mean that he's going to check/raise it all the time.
