      There was only one card to beat me and he had it. Should I play this hand differently?

      Hi.

      I would just shove preflop. He has already invested 30bb and is probably committed into stacking off. I think we are definitely ahead of his shoving range which should contain QQ/AK most of the time, and JJ some of the time.

      Don't forget he's 50 VPIP over a 10 hand sample, which should be a good indication that he's very likely to be aggro and loose. The stats aren't 100% accurate but I think the likelihood of him being aggro is just that much higher.

      About your 3bet size: I think it's a little too large. He raised to 6bb preflop, so making it 3X (18 bb) is kind of large, it's almost the size of a small 4bet. Maybe you can make a slightly smaller 3bet to 75c.
