      Hi,


      More like wrong 3betting to begin with. Broadway cards look pretty but they aren't really, you are basically isolating yourself again hands that dominate you (AT+,KQ+, TT+), meaning you will be a huge underdog against his range if the money goes in. At best you will be flipping against a low pair, and you don't want to get into situation where you can't hope for more than a coinflip.


      If you want to 3bet anyway, you are 3bet/folding and turning your hand into a bluff from the begining, which means you have to realize that your cards don't even matter anymore. They might still look okay after you get shoved on, but you need to fold anyway.


      If he has been doing that often and you want to defend, he's giving you a great price to just see a flop in position and play postflop, which against a shortstack basically means hoping to flop a pair and than go with it. If you aren't comfortable doing that, just muck your hand and wait for better ones, you don't need to get into blinds wars to beat nl2.


      Hope it helps.
