      Table is 9 handed but there were ppl waiting for blinds. SB seems solid TAG 13/10 and knows what he is doing. This is 4th time he attacks my blinds in unopened pot.

      My stats: 10/9

      $0.1/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      UTG ($54.75)
      UTG 1 ($15.35)
      CO ($26.15)
      BTN ($24.15)
      SB ($21.65)
      Hero ($23.80)

      Pre-flop: ($0.35, 6 players) Hero is BB J:spade: Q:club:
      4 folds, SB raises to $1, Hero calls $0.75

      Flop: A:spade: 5:heart: 4:club: ($2, 2 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero raises to $3

      If I assume he is stealing with any semi-decent hand in unopened pot, is it profitable to reraise him on any flop (and especially with A on flop)? Or if I think he is stealing, should I better 3bet with QJ pf?

      I think call is better than 3-bet, since you´re deep and you could always hit two pair or trips and get most of his stack postflop.
      Postflop: raising is fine, since he´d probably have to fold all his hands than Ax or set and if he steels a lot then he doesn´t have these hands. Nh, although I wont recommend doing that move too often, since villainswould get suspicion and call you don with any pp or rebluff.
