      I would not open that kind of hand from that position, especially with that kind of Bu player.

      Hey gao20005,

      A4s from MP is not a mandatory open. It may be fine to fold in this case, especially if there are light 3better still to act behind you.

      I don't really recommend you 3 bet draws at these stakes because you probably don't have the fold equity. You have sufficient pot odds, just call the flop OOP.

      My 3bet was too small,How about we 3bet and push flop?

      Actually I think your flop sizing was great.

      I just think 3betting draws at this limit will be a losing strategy overall. You need fold equity in order to profitably 3bet draws. In order to have fold equity your opponents needs to be raising light, which is not happening often enough at these stakes.
