      I just had 6 hands on him, including this hand, obviusly seemed fishy (50/50, 3bet:100).

      I have no clue what should i do here. I dont think i can call on the flop, a lot of cards will be bad for me, and he can keep fireing with draws on the turn. Folding looks very weak, so i decided to stack off, which i also dont like.

      Hi Absolutism,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that shoving the flop will isolate us against mostly better hands and even a NFD is 50/50 with us (or even slight fav). So this is definitely overplay.

      I would just call the flop and play the turn IP or simply fold the flop since an overbet is likely a strong hand.

      You must be right, i was on a little bit of tilt because of the 170bb hand which i posted a few mins ago.
