      Hey Dzikson999,

      I would fold here. You are very likely behind the range of the SB here and you are not getting odds to setmine. In this particular spot SB 3bet % is likely a fair bit lower than his average 3bet of 6.8%, probably closer to 2-3%.

      If 3bet was smaller and it was likely CO would overcall I may consider calling to set-mine but folding on flops without a T.

      Given that you did call vs a tight range you should basically just set-mine. Folding flop is fine, no need to float here imo.

      And how big someone 3 bet % should be that you will start to defend TT ipo (calling) and how big % when will you start to 4 bet pre ?

      Standard call20 rule is a good start.

      You can defend with less behind to win if

      a) open raise has a very tight range
      b) there is another caller or an opponent who is likely to overcall

      3bet % is not necessarily the most important factor in deciding whether you should 4bet TT. If I don't suspect someone has a wide 5bet range I usually prefer to flat TT in position and 4bet mainly as a bluff. If you suspect someone is capable of shoving light with hands like Axs and small PP's then 4bet/calling TTs becomes a good option.

      Positions are important also, I'd very rarely be 4betting TT from MP, far more often it would occur somewhere like SBvsBB
