      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      As played prelfop I don't really mind check/calling the flop. We have backdoor FD and SD and also A high might be the best hand quite often.

      On the turn check/calling is good as well.

      As played on the previous streets, I'd prefer to bet here myself since I'm not sure how often he is going to bet a hand like 8x here but I definitely think he's not folding against one bet here.
      I'd make it around $1.2 here.

      What are you going to do if we bet $1.2 here and get raised?

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi guys,

      Plamen, why do we call preflop? He steals almost any two, shouldn't we 3bet him as much as possible? We will get both FE and intiative, and what do we gain with a call?

      Thanks.

      Hello,

      So when you want to 3bet here what your 3bet for - value or bluff?

      If it's for value then he has to be calling very wide but still, do we want to make a big pot with a hand like A7s? I mean, this hand plays well in small pots and I wouldn't really like to 3bet it if I expect to get called a lot.

      Then, if he folds a lot, why do we 3bet a hand like this, that has decent playability postflop and we can probably outplay him and overflush him a lot as well?

      Best,
      Plamen

      Okay...and what would you 3bet light here? Smaller aces, small suited kings?

      Oh, I didn't realize that he made only a min-raise. So we get good pot odds to look at the flop with our A7s. Would you rather 3bet if he gave us worse pot odds? (e.g. 3-4bb raise and we are on SB)

      I'd be more inclined to 3bet against a bigger sizing here.

      So if he tends to fold a lot to 3bet, I'd 3bet basically with hands that I don't feel comfortable calling with.
      If we think that we can call with KTs here, but not with K9s then we should 3bet with K9s and K8s/K7s etc.
      Of course we shouldn't go pretty away with the bluff 3bets and I'd definitely 3bet looser for value.

      I'd only call. If he has 7x we split, and I loose vs FHs. I'd only call because I expect him to raise with 8x aswell.

      If you do expect him to raise naked 8x here I think calling is fine.
      Otherwise I would just fold here since we are only hoping for a split.
