      22/20
      82% fold bb vs steal
      8.7% 3bet (14% vs bu)
      15% vs bu
      4.8 af
      81% cbet flop 3bet pot
      47% cbet turn 3bp
      57% cbet river 3bp
      50k hands

      Hands are from datamine, but im sure i have some k hands played against him because we are always at the tables. So i think that big 3bet vs me its real (hero is folding above the average to 3bets)
      Any read to this spot anyway, i think he is good and not giving away many reads. I I think he normally bets 2/3 in 3bet pots flop.

      CO: $34.94 (69.9 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $62.33 (124.7 bb)
      SB: $77.10 (154.2 bb)
      BB: $52.56 (105.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q A
      CO folds, Hero raises to $1.25, SB folds, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $2.75

      Flop: ($8.25) Q 3 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $5.87, Hero calls $5.87

      Turn: ($19.99) 7 (2 players)
      BB bets $14.22, Hero ....

      I dont think he will completely ignore balance in sizes, but here i believe we will be strong most of the time because my hand look like Qx, and i think he wont bet that strong to make me fold second pair.
      Should i play standard and call twice (at least) anyway?

      With this size he kinda ruins his chances to triple barrel cause he would have to shove ~26$ in 48$ which is a bit awkward.

      Anyways I'm not folding tptk in 3bet pot, and my standard in this spot with this info is to call 3 times, not twice. Call turn, call or shove vs missed river and make a note.

      I'd actually look at just shipping the turn given how the stacks will be on the river.

      And I doubt our range is only Qx when we call the flop. Our hand can be anything from 7x to Qx and even some draws that we dont raise flop with.
