      MP 1.1 K 24/21, fold to 3bet 74

      Is my bluff 3bet iP ok with 2 blockers and extra dead money?
      When SB calls, it is AK, JJ+, maybe even no JJ.

      I planned to give up to his bets, but river I think he has hard time calling, I could have in my range 8x, or flush, but he can have so passive only AK and can hope for split in best case, and I think I might lose here maybe 1% of time.

      I don't think your 3bet needs to be so large vs a 5BB raise. I think 13BB should suffice.

      As played I think it's fine, if he has a nitty mentality he is going to fold really often. Given the way the action played out, I really doubt he has a flush or straight so we can attempt to fold him out of a chop with an overbet.
