      Hi Oly,

      PReflop: I think that we can fold these weak pairs versus tighter 3-bettor.

      Postflop: As played your line is fine and your bet sizing can be bigger on the turn. He can call half pot bet there with all the hands that plan on calling a street.

      My thinking for calling 3bet was that I will call exactly because he is tighter. I have position end if I hit I'll stack him off more often then someone who 3bets light because his range should be stronger and more likely to play for stack, and if I miss, I'm giving up.

      But as you can see here (and other examples) we generally do not stack them every time or even often. We also have to count the times we lose with the set and the times we fold if we don't hit (7 out of 8). OF course this improves with bigger pairs because we can continue more often and get set/set less often.
