      Hard to say if you can't give him credit for knowing that he needs a stronger range to bet into the MP3 fish, he could have anything from any pair to some draw to pure air.

      Against a tag i'd be worried that raising might induce a jam from decent draws in that spot, but he's kind of a halfstacker so i don't mind just 3x'ing his donk and seeing what happens. Sometimes he'll fold, he'll probably rarely 3bet, and if he calls we still have position, two overcards that might be live, a gutshot to the nuts and a backdoor nutflush draw, so it's not like we're dead or anything. We'll be able to make close to perfect decisions on the following streets.

      I certainly wouldn't fold at higher stakes, but at the micros folding is certainly fine it'll keep you from making a costly mistake when you don't have a read on the player.

      Hope it helps.
