      Preflop: Hero is BTN with Q:diamond: Q:club:
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4, 2 folds, CO calls $2.50

      Flop: ($8.75) T:club: 5:heart: 7:club: (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $5, CO raises to $15, Hero calls $10

      Turn: ($38.75) 7:spade: (2 players)
      CO bets $19.50, Hero raises to $57.01, CO calls $25.24


      Preflop 8bb is my default 3bet size vs 3x open IP. With the stack a bit deeper should i 3bet 3x?

      Postflop, i think folding is out of the question.

      Which line do you prefer on the flop? Call and ship most turns or just reraise on the flop?

      Hi Achilles,

      Preflop: Any reason as to why we 3-bet on the small size (8 BB) with 127 BB effective stack? You have more info on villain (stack size) so you should raise a bit bigger. I'd make it 9-10 BB.

      Postflop: Given the size of the preflop raise and our effective stacks his range can be really wide here with lots of draws and even TP so we can definitely 3-bet the flop, especially since there are many bad cards that can come down (that can either kill our action or scare us).

      Of course calling is fine too but I prefer raising.
