      CO is 25/23 over 41 hands.
      BB is 95/9 over 22 hands.

      Two questions here.

      Can we 3bet here pre flop, or would calling/folding be the best? I decided to 3bet just to pick up the pot against a seemingly aggressive player.

      When BB cold calls the 3bet, do we stab anywhere, for example on the turn?

      I figured check/folding it down was good given the stack to pot ratio.

      But 3betting pre seems a little marginal to me in hindsight...

      Hi TinoLaan,

      Preflop: I think that 3-betting as a bluff with a blocker and position is perfectly fine.

      Postflop: As played I think that taking a stab on the turn would be good and we can even consider it for thin value.
