      As I`m so deep against UTG, I like bigger 3-bet sizing. Would fold to a 4-bet.

      FLOP
      I can`t expect villain to min-raise with 44, 55, even KxQc. Most likely he`s got a flush. Best line, I think, is to call and re-evaluate the turn.

      Hi.

      He's probably polarized so call and reevaluate is probably the best idea. It's great that he doesn't raise sets, but if he is capable of raising sets and QcK or JcK and stacking off with those hands then flatting here would be losing value.

      Thanks,

      I`ve got only 20 hands on him, but as my note inclines, he`s very aggressive.

      Should I expect for such a villain to raise sets/KxQc? I think in this spot his raise is too small and he can`t really represent those hands.

      E.g. if he would raise 3x or more, should I just shove? What would be your line in this spot?

      I think when he makes a smaller raise, we get less money taking down the pot when he bluffs. I think 3betting makes more sense if he raises to 2, like you mentioned.

      Given that he seems bad, I think playing for stacks here is never going to be a huge mistake. but i probably have a slight preference for calling here given his min-raise.
