      I wasn;t sure of whether I should worry about calling or not. I had only 17 hands of the initial raiser but was 29/24, the 3better I had 165 hands with a 3bet of 3.1%..
      I guess that gives me really good equity, but what if the initial raiser was a bit tighter, say 12/11 or something like that?

      Hey WildBeans,

      it's a good call. Even if BU pushes here only AK/JJ+ you have 47.3% equity against him and if MP3 folds pot odds give you 45.5% needed equity. Now, presuming MP3 continues here with AK/JJ+ then you have 32.7% equity, but only need 32%. So you see it's a profitable push either way, but most likely BU will push looser and this will result in higher average profit for you.
