      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with A :spade: 4 :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.90
      This looks like a good semibluffing hand. Or the problem is, that we are OOP? My image is TAGISH, so we could make him fold a lot of hands, and I have a blocker.

      Because it's only 5 players on that table, I think this play is good. I'd just 3-bet it bigger coz you are oop, 1-1.1$.

      What's your plan on flops where you don't hit?

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: The hand you chose to 3-bet is good here but the size you make it is not.

      We should raise here between 10-12 BB because smaller bets like this invite a lot of calls with position and you want more fold equity.

      Put yourself in his shoes. How do you treat a 9bb vs 10-12 BB 3-bet when IP?

      1.PLAN
      If board is A-high, I check-call ~1 street.
      If K,Q-high, I bet out.
      If I get a draw, I bet.
      If board is low and I dont connect in any way, I check/fold.

      2. 65% FE -->0.9$
      68% FE-->1$
      70% FE-->1.1$
      72% FE-->1.2$
      If raising to e.g. 1$ gives more than 3% FE than 0.9$, we should do that.
      I guess raising big is better, because people wont setmine light, and wont call with random junk BECAUSE they are IP getting good odds, as you have stated. 1$ could nice here.

      Under normal circumstances people love to call smaller 3-bets because they think they get better odds (and to some degree they do). If we know that villain is fit/fold that may not be a bad thing because we collect more pots postflop with a cbet.

      But against unknowns we should keep it standard to 10-12 BB (based on the money in the pot prior to our raise).
