      Hi.

      Preflop: Could consider calling a raise to $0.45. But this raise to $0.55 is way too large. I'm folding here. You also can't be too sure how wide his 3b range is due to the small sample size. This makes postflop playability really bad OOP without the initiative.

      Flop: as played, I guess check/shoving is not too bad when the pot is already so large and protection becomes more important.

      Assuming you did call a smaller 3bet to 40-45 cents and villain bets something like half pot on the Flop, check/call is much better cos when you shove here you are only going to get called by stronger over-pairs. As i pointed out, the check/shove seems more like a protection play but putting in $5 to win $1.50 doesn't seem like a winning proposition.

      At least when you check/pushed here, you were risking around $5 to win $2.30.
