      guess this shouldnt be played any other way vs an unknown?

      he has a pretty high 3b, small sample, i know, but still...
      and players 3b ultra light here on zoom bvb, and i ot 3b like 5th time in a row so i decided to call oop here and go from there.... i think HU it still plays pretty well, especvially aginst a wide 3b range includin lots of Kx hands

      I think defending OOP here is perfectly fine against a wide 3bet. I would probably not defend KJo for example, but suited has enough playability. Postflop, I usually think you should play your hand as more of a bluffcatcher, although you have equity to get it in against his range. Basically, It depends a lot which range you want to strenghten with a hand that does well. Do you check/raise as a bluff often here and can use KJs to balance bluffs? Or do you call rarely preflop so you need more hands to get to showdown in a passive manner?

      One thing I don't like though is your raise size. I think $12.50 is enough, the extra 5bb do nothing imo.
