      BB was 48/30/11 over 34 - unknown.

      Calling to setmine as I'm getting great odds.

      I think I should check back as his range is quite strong given his min3bet (TT+, AQ+).

      Pot control.

      This seems like a value bet from QQ-TT or slowplayed Kx so I fold.
      I am behind his value range and not so sure if he bluffs so smallish.

      Tip about min-3betters: Some do it with a wide range, others do it with the nuts only. Min 3bets tend to contain more weaker hands in resteal positions. However, one thing is common - These min-3betters often have a slowplaying mentality and they will often check QQ-AA on the Flop from my personal experience.

      As such, I would recommend playing super passively to avoid getting trapped by these trappy guys.

      Flop: Check and hope to get to showdown. Vs a >50% pot bet I think you can fold at any point. vs a <50% pot bet maybe you can call once or twice.
