      villain playing 46/8/20 3bet over 13 hands
      5.0 AF

      not sure which line to take on flop, seems like raising might be optimistic even vs fish? on turn i struggle to see too many hands that i still beat.

      any way to play it differently/more optimally?

      Preflop: I'm assuming that even though the sample is small villain is most likely a fish so we can 3-bet larger, at least 1 more BB.

      Postflop: Other than raising in hopes we stack off there's not much else we can do (call flop, fold turn).

      If we do raise we are looking to get it in versus TT/Qx/Tx and some FDs so I think that overall we should be doing a +EV move.
