      he opened smaller amounts before, that is why I just called here.

      Hello,

      I would be inclined to 3bet here against a rather weaker opponent here.

      On the flop checking is fine.

      I think check/calling the turn is fine.
      I expect him to cbet all his made hands on the flop but if we check/call here then we have to check/call the river as well.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi!


      Clearly, we would 3-bet as a bluff PRE?
      How small the BU stack has to be, for us to go broke?

      Not as bluff but for value. you only have 10 hands on the villain but he has raised 5 of them, so we can assume he is on the looser side. You 3 bet for value because you are ahead of his wide openin range and you want to get value from worse (his 3bet calling range which can also likely be wide)

      I usually treat min-raises from fish as limp, so I definitely raise him pre-flop. For value, not as bluff.

      'As a bluff' I meant that we`re not stacking off PRE. Of course villain can call with worse.

      We have to distinguish bluff from thin value here. (although I wouldn't really say that AQ is too thin)

      In this spot we can get called by worse hands for sure, also would love to pick up the 5.5bb in the pot.

      If he has around 50bb I thnk we can 3bet/call here.
