      I`m not sure if the preflop call is profitable here , even tho u`re IP. I would rather wait for a spot where he isnt making a good raise size or he is deeper staked . When u flop a sd + fd in 3 bet pot u have to go for stacks IMO. Not sure if normal raise or shove is better . I guess this way you are maximizing ur fold equity which should be ok since you still only have a draw.

      Hello,

      Preflop: I don't like to Call here, I am folding my hand.

      As played
      Flop: I am taking those odds and just Calling.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      unless player 3-bet a lot it should be fold pf or if you think he is 3-betting too many times then call or 4-bet are also reasonable.
      I like shove, since that would likely give you the most fold equity against Ax hands and maybe also he´d fold there 77-QQ

      I was getting 3-bet a lot. Maybe I need to tighten up and reduce my pfr a bit to prevent this from happening. I wanted to take a stand and take a flop in position.

      Thanks for the advice everyone.
