      If CO is loose and bad player, 3-bet. He can call with lot worse. Most likely this guy is one of those.

      If villain is tighter, then just call - otherwise you isolate yourself against stronger hands.

      Hey DNYiancu

      Villain looks bad, but also has a low PFR. For this reason I would flat preflop - don't see much point bloating the pot preflop when you may not have much of an equity edge.

      3bet vs wide openers with low Ft3bet stats.

      Flat vs tighter openers and/or have high Ft3bet stats.
