      BU was 62/5/7 over 44
      AG% - 51(40/64/63)
      Small bets for thin value

      Villain was rather aggressive and made small bets with marginal hands. I think this applies to minraises as well so I thought he could do this with Ax. I shoved for max value from Ax as he wasn't of the folding type.

      Should I 3bet smaller? Or should I just call?

      Hi David,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: He seems like an aggro fish over this sample so if we think (or have seen) overplays with TP type hands then I would 3-bet as well.

      However, I'd make it small to give him a chance to put the last of his money in.
