      Hero (CO): $5.00 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 17, 3B: 5, AF: 4.7, Hands: 1587

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is CO with A :spade: K :spade:
      1 fold, MP raises to $0.17, Hero calls $0.17, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.41) 3 :spade: 8 :heart: 6 :spade: (2 players)
      MP bets $0.30, Hero raises to $0.80, MP raises to $1.90, Hero raises to $4.83, MP calls $2.93

      PF: Villain hadn't played a hand before this hand, so I call to keep dominated hands in his range.

      F: He seems quite strong with his bet {over-pair or set}, since I've got such a good draw, I think it's correct for me to get it all-in on flop. I want to put the last bet in though to get maximum fold-equity which I do successfully.

      Just wondering if this is the correct line pre-flop and flop, taking into consideration that this is Zoom and players fold more to 3-bets.

      Hello,

      If you don't expect him to continue with worse if we 3bet then flatting is fine.
      My standard here will be to 3bet.

      On the flop I like raising but I'd make it around $1.
      When he 3bets I think stacking off might be a good option. He could have bluffs or weaker draws, and against most of his overpairs we are 50/50.

      Best,
      Plamen
