      I am just calling his flop bet in position after being 3-bet preflop - because I only see one hand we want to raise for protection against - AKcc, sometimes AQcc and the hands that we beat - pairs <=QQ he is going to give up on the turn often. So I prefer calling and folding to a bet on the turn - or bet/folding myself if he checks. I certainly fold to his min re-raise on the flop - I think the best you can hope for there is a split pot.

      Hard to say without knowing anything about his 3betting tendencies, it's not a horrible stack off by any means with top pair in a 3bet pot, but surely knowing more about your opponent could help you play it more optimally.

      Most 15/10/1 guys likely don't 3-bet very light to begin with even BB vs BU, and when they take goofy lines in a 3bet pot they are a lot more likely to have you smoked than to be spazzing out.

      amplifyd's line looks fine, it's a fair assumption at microstakes that tight regs will shutdown on the turn with less than AK.

      Hope it helps.
