      IF he has high wtsd, then I'd just ch/fold on flop. And when he has so small pfr, I'd rather flat this hand pre, coz he seems to be passive and won't most likely bet w/o hit.

      Hey Straywolf,

      Standard play would be to fold this pre-flop, you can't profitably defend ATo vs MP open by flat calling in most cases. If you 3bet it's as a bluff, not for value.

      When your 3bet bluff fails I'd just give up on the flop. He usually has a reasonably strong hand when he flats 3bet in MP, and is unlikely folding to one bet.
