      Hey VasiliZaitsev,

      Preflop call is fine, even better if there is a fish still to act. Might be close to the bottom of your range though, you'd prefer to 3bet bluff if the hand was much weaker. It also depends on villain's ATS from the CO.

      Making a small raise on the flop for value/protection is fine, but vs a 3bet you are usually crushed at these limits, and should fold. Raise/fold flop.

      Flatting is also an option, especially if villain doesn't call very wide but likes to barrel.
