      Preflop: 3 bet in position vs 20/6 (16 hands). Pretty much a raise or fold spot for me I think. Opted for the raise because villain folds a lot on the flop.

      Flop: Standard c-bet repping the K, slighty less than 2/3 pot because I'm not really afraid of anything on the board and this is what I'd bet normally if I hit here. Villain thinks for about 45 seconds then opts to push. I think he insta-shoves with a K here so I put him on a medium pair and figure I have 6 outs. Its 14.5BB back to me for a 70BB pot. Standard call or could I have found a fold here?

      Hey K,

      Calling pre is also an option. Your opponent doesn't look crazy or anything plus you can use your position better with somewhat deeper stacks.

      As played, I prefer shove or check flop. He has just over potsize left. Take your FE and shove or, if you had a value hand, bet small to induce calls and raises. A high benefits a lot from your opponent folding free cards and potential bluff raises.
