      ------

      BU was 41/35/0 over 17.

      PREFLOP
      3bet bluff. From the low sample and his stack size he is likely to be loose passive, meaning that he calls 3bets light.
      Therefore, I should only 3bet for value with AQ+/TT+ and call with the rest.

      FLOP
      I need 40.31% equity to break-even.

      It's close call/fold if his range is QQ-77/55/33/A7s
      Board: 7c5s3h
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 39.79% 39.24% 0.54% { Ah4h }
      MP3 60.21% 59.67% 0.54% { QQ-77, 55, 33, A7s }

      If we he bluffs at least some % of the time with Kx the call becomes profitable.
      If not, it should be a fold.
      However, I assume he bluffs here at least sometimes.

      Hi Dawidas

      Preflop: You have it right, ideally you want to expend your value range instead of bluffing, at least until you know more.

      However, you can definitely go higher than AQ+/TT. I'd add at least AJs, KQs there.

      As played your best case scenario is less than break even which is not great for us. It's true that it's close but I still think folding is correct.
