      Another SB spot I'm not sure what to do in, Fold, Call or Raise!? ?(

      As played I figure Villain could have floated with Ax so was prepared to give up.

      Hi Matt,

      Preflop: What do we know about villain? 3-bet is perfectly fine here even this deep. I like it better than calling especially from SB

      Postflop: As played I would definitely double barrel the turn in an attempt to get him to fold non Ax floats and pocket pairs. If called I'd give up.
