      Villain is unknown , but first time i 3 beted him he was Utg and he shoved to my 3 bet ?! This was my second 3 bet vs him so i think his range is polarized here. I think he would $bet shoved i guess AA. KK and AK (maybe i am wrong, he maybe shoves weaker hands and flat monster i dont know but i guess its less likely) so that leaves ton off flush draws imo in his range , but since my pair is weak his still got ton off equity vs my hand so i folded ? what do you think should i consider calling could it be EV + ? What is your rough estimation off my eqiuty in this spot ?

      Hey Dzikson,

      I don't really see any need for this hand to be in your squeezing range when MP open-raises. Especially if he has a history of re-raising from EP vs 3bet.

      Flop cbet is fine as a semi-bluff. I wouldn't level yourself in to calling here. Your equity is probably somewhere around 25%.
