      Hi noulispa,

      Preflop: looks fine as a thin value 3-bet

      Postflop: We can't really check for pot control when we play OOP. We give up initiative and then we can face up to 3 streets of action. Where's the pot control there?

      For example if you are IP you check and pot control because you skip a street of bets.

      So I rather bet/fold there than ck/fold or ck/call. And we can bet 2 streets usually.
