      Hi

      this is a fold by default, unless u have reads that he 3bets a lot and is weak postflop. This pretty much applies to all defends with speculative/semi-strong hands.

      Thanks.

      will you tell me the meaning of speculative hands?

      Speculative hands = Hands which are weak, but are hoping to connect with the Flop. Mostly referring to suited/connected stuff, or maybe low pocket pairs

      For example
      1) A2s - You are trying to have a nut flush draw or a nut flush
      2) 67s - You are trying to flop a straight/flush draw
      3) 33 - You are trying to flop a set, if not you only have bottom pair.


      In case you want to know what speculate actually means.

      Speculate
      to engage in any business transaction involving considerable risk or the chance of large gains, especially to buy and sell commodities, stocks, etc., in the expectation of a quick or very large profit.
