      I came off a big win in the BB and that is why my stack is so high (I had sit out next bb clicked! :f_p: ). With the double re-raise I was putting them on AK/AQ or JJ+ (which had me beat so I don't know why I pushed over).

      Preflop I would go to 7bb to get more value out of your hand preflop.

      As played, you CAN opt for bet/fold there against a 3bet from Mp3 and still can leave the table with a decent profit since I think you are mostly flipping here for 1 big mainpot and a relatively small sidepot

      On 2NL I think players will play draws passively so I don't think you are ahead here hence I fold with a doubled stack
