      I wasn't sure if I played this one correctly or not. Looking back on it now I think it's played pretty badly as it's a 3-bet pot which puts villain on a tighter range. I guess I beat AK, Qx, 88-JJ and lose to 7x, KK+.
      Should I have called pre-flop?
      Is the flop a call, or raise/fold?
      Villain is unknown (zoom table)

      Hi Red,

      Considering villains stack size he is most likely a recreational player so I would call there as well. Normally min 3-bets are on the stronger side but we really have no info on him so I wouldn't put him only a super strong range (and we get decent odds to call).

      As played I don't like the flop raise, what's the purpose of the raise on such a dry flop versus unknown?

      We may end up isolating only against the better part of his range so my plan would be to call flop and play turn/river.
