      PRE
      Standard.

      FLOP
      Min-raise usually is the nuts line - AT or TT. But can I really get away in 3-bet pot? At the time villain was rather unknown, and maybe could play AJ/AQ/combo draws the same way.

      I would rather bet bigger and fold to a raise.

      Hey Dienaszaglis,

      Preflop is fine.

      Postflop - even in 3bet pots you can get away from your hand in this spot. Even if we give villain all combos of AQ + combo draws you are still a dog vs his whole range if he has AT + sets.

      If he has AJ too you have around 44% equity or so. Enough equity to call down but not enough equity to shove.

      More often than not his range is nutted and it's an easy flop fold. You could bet flop larger for value maybe. You extract more value and also lower the chance that you get raised light.
