      Hey guys, Villain is 38/25. Is calling three streets with this hand ok? Or should I give up somewhere?

      Well what is villain 3bet overal, 3bet from BB and hand sample would be good questions to ask.

      His 3b is 5% (from BB 7%, but this occured only 43 times) after 300 hands. Which kinda means that probably it should be fold preflop, right?

      For me this would be a fold pre without any good info suggesting otherwise. If villain 3bets in this spot a lot or has started attacking my steals, I would then probably 4bet this hand. But I think calling ATo when OOP is the worst choise.

      You have TPTK so I think it could be worth to call 2 streets especially when the bet sizings are not huge. But calling 3 streets in a 3bet pot doesn't seem right.

      I agree that calling the 3b preflop is not good. 4b/fold is better.
      Definately calling 2 streets with TPTK. Otherwise you start to overfold.

      Fold pre flop.

      As played fold the river or turn your hand into a bluff on and shove it. He might fold an overpair being afraid of 4 to the straight. I think calling this river is the worst option.
