      When to Call, Fold or 3Bet in the Big Blind?

      I thought about Squeezing here but wasn't sure if the best play was to squeeze or get into a multiway pot with KTo?

      I should lead here with TP and be happy t take the pot, no idea why I didn't.

      River call was shocking, no excuse.

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: This spots should be dependent on the opponents you have in the hand.

      Calling I think is our worst option because KTo does not play great multiway, OOP and without initiative. The opponents don't look fishy either.

      So I either 3-bet or just fold. 3-betting is fine when you expect a lot of fold equity.

      Postflop: AS played we should bet/fold the turn unless we expect villain to be bluffing.

      What do we know about him, what range did you put him on?
