      Hi.

      Preflop: I don't mind 3betting so much though your size seems way too large IMO (that's like 13BB). With AA/KK/QQ I'm flatting here to let MP in as he seems to be a huge fish.

      But if he's limp/calling 3bets with a super wide range (which I suspect he may be doing when he's 67 VPIP) then 3b may be ok. But with AKo I prefer just 3betting as it is a hand which doesn't play so well in multi-way situations.

      When MP calls I think his range can still be kind of wide. Maybe strong suited broadways and pocket pairs.

      Flop: He seems passive. I actually don't mind just check/folding. When you just jam here I doubt he folds any pocket pair and he probably folds AQ. I don't expect him to bet too often so if he bets large we can fold. If he bets kind of small I think c/c may be fine.

      Thanks.

      Hey mbml,

      I think that is quite my standards 12-13 bb when a guy isolates to 4bb and I'm OOP.

      What sizing would you recommend ? (why?)

      As his raise size gets larger u can use smaller 3b multiples. So if he makes it 10bb u dont need to 3x his raise. 2.3-2.5x to 23-25 bb makes more sense right (typical 4bet sizes vs 3bets).

      I think a similar concept applies to isoraises. 11-12bb is acceptable in this spot. And if opponent minraises then 3x is too small, 3,5-4x makes more sense.
