      I am assuming the "CO" is actually the SB here.

      Personally I would fold pre. Mainly due to the fact that we don't have a big enough stack for the implied odds and after we call the pot is still open to a 3b from the BU. 4b'ing for value would be super overplayed IMO as well since surely no worse hand would call.

      As for villain's 3b% it all depends on what sort of sample size we are looking at and who he 3b's, from what positions etc. If someone is 3b'ing too much I agree that we should start calling them more IP, 4b'ing for value / 4b bluffing but in this situation we really have to be worried about sticking 9.5bb out there and having to fold it because the BU raises and SB shoves.

      As played...

      What worse hand calls the flop raise here? It would suck to get barrelled off on the turn but I would call and re-evaluate. If he barrels the turn then I am most likely folding.

      Hello,

      Quite an easy fold here preflop. By calling we put ourselves into a pretty tough spot, since we give BU quite a good price to continue and with a hand like 99 we don't really want to go into multiway pot, also our hand doesn't stand great against SB's 3betting range.

      Why do you raise the flop here? I don't get it. What worse hands do you expect to call us?

      As played, I'd check back the turn. I can't imagine him calling with broadways here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Fold pre, especially since he has a high 3bet from the blinds. Even if we do flop our set, which only happens 11% of the time, he will not have a strong enough range most of the time to stack off.

      Also, even if you know his postflop play in 3bet pots, which i doubt, the spr is low to consider any maneuvering
