      Hey Tommygecko,

      Preflop is fine.

      I think flop-raise is fine. I'd raise a little smaller to encourage villain to continue with a wide range.

      The ideal outcome is villain flats the flop, turn is safe card, you value bet the turn. Usually these spots are pretty easy to play because the majority of opponents flat flop raise with Qx, draws, and 3bet 2pair/sets.

      Best action vs a flop 3bet is just to muck, especially when slightly deep.
