      After watching Pleno's video @ NL10 he explains how you can 3Bet rather profitably at NL10 and as I don't do this nearly enough I'm putting it into action.

      I can be ahead of BTN's range often here and as my 3Bet is small I can get weaker hands to be calling here and often take it down with a Cbet if their hand is stronger than my own. I deicde to CBet as this board will oftne hit his range and give me a profible play over time, he will rarely call the flop bet with 67/78 and only QT+ hits as well as some Axs but even then I can comfortably re-evaluate the turn card and give up when required.

      Do you agree with this? Again, would like to see some other opinions !

      I think our hand is good enough to call here as well.
      Also, we are deeper with BU and we should definitely make it bigger - like $1.2-$1.3.

      How much villain folds against cbet?
      I think we can cbet here profitably. Sizing looks fine although we could make it $0.9.
      He is likely to fold Ax/Kx/PPs and hands like T9 etc here so cbetting here is fine and my plan will be to give up on the turn if he calls.
      If he tends to call a lot against cbets, I prefer checking here since if we get called we will have hard time playing on the later streets with this hand.
