      This guy is probably a fishy chinese reg. I've really played vs lots of them and all are very strange and doing sometimes incredible idiotic moves. I really think the same about chinese as mbml saying about russian. :-)

      I completly understand 3bet here is not such a good move preflop, but I was kinda in tilt when that opp some hands before got stupid moves and won pretty huge pots from me. And also I expect him to call preflop tonn of worth suited hands, so actually 3bet in position isn't so bad.

      Hey Vladimir,

      3bet IP is not bad in general but your reason for doing it, basically none and it was a reflex out of tilt is bad. Definitely, you need to improve that mindset.

      As played preflop, I don't see other play postflop.

      The problem with your 3bet is that you never take advantage of dead money so you bloat the pot with a weaker hand than his range that cannot make him fold since he is basically a calling station. 3bet for thin value with K8s for example, call K3s if you think you can play a small pot IP profitably or just fold it pre, it's not a mandatory hand to play.
