Turn: (\$106.81) 4 (2 players)

River: (\$106.81) Q (2 players)

Preflop:
When OP's open 50% + from BU and make it 2 bbs, I'm 3betting smaller.
If it's \$1 then I make it around \$ 3.5- \$ 4. Thus making the
SPR = ~ 6.5

Normally I like to 3bet to around \$ 5 (1/10 or 10%) making the SPR= 4.5

I guess it's not all that bad for AQ+, QQ+, but I'm still doing bad vs set mining, giving 20:1 odds for Villain to call.

Problem is that I have to 3bet the same size with my value hands and my bluffs. Don't I? (Even bad OP's will notice that.)

I guess, when I'm OOP, I still need to make it bigger and make a disadvantage for my opponents. In position however I can maneuver postflop and even induce small PP to call preflop to fold those out postflop.
F.e. BU vs CO 3bet smaller and 2barrel.

Flop: In game I thought I'm about 50/50 or slightly losing, but the pot is big enough to play for stacks. Calling would be the worst play IMO. Folding is also an option, but I call is more + EV with a big pot.
