      Not sure whether the 3bet pf was correct, fold on turn correct? Opinions please :)

      Nice hand. Bet more flop like 0.60-0.70

      I wouldn't 3-bet preflop in early position unless you know he's fishy enough to call you with worse, because if he's a reg the value in 3-betting is pretty thin and you risk getting 4-bet out of your hand, which is sad since by seeing a flop you could have maybe flopped a set and stacked some of the hands that will 4-bet you.

      As played on the flop it's dicey, he needs to be somewhat bad to show up here with a hand that we're not flipping with at best when we get it in on that flop. He could have any and all of 88-99/JJ+/AdQd/AdKd/KdQd depending on how he plays against 3-bets and it's quite hard to navigate your way to the best play in a 3-bet pot with no information on villain. I guess it all comes back to not 3-betting preflop unless you know why you're doing it.

      As played on the turn folding is fine, I don't think we beat anything he donks out like that with on that card.

      Hope it helps.
