      BTN: $73.13 (146.3 bb)
      Hero (SB): $68.07 (136.1 bb)
      BB: $17.06 (34.1 bb)
      UTG: $69.76 (139.5 bb)
      MP: $50 (100 bb)
      CO: $34.32 (68.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: J:heart:
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.50, 2 folds, Hero raises to $5, BB calls $4.50, MP folds

      Flop: ($11.50) 8:diamond: 3:diamond: K:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $12.04, BB calls $12.04

      MP is 21/18 with 70% fold to 3bet.
      BB is unknown

      Preflop i don`t think that i can call profitable, so i decided to 3bet as a bluff.

      On this flop? Is it ok to shove with a BDFD and fold without it? I might make him fold AQ/AJ/AT/QJ. PP will probably call, but i have some equity vs. those.

      Preflop: Calling is probably not profitable. Why don't you just fold though? But when villain's fold to 3b is 70%, you can't go wrong with 3betting this hand

      Flop: With only a PSB left, I think you should just push here.
