      Opp: 42/23/2.5 over 30 hands and this was his 1st 3bet.

      At that point he had raised and played a lot of hands lately, so I decided that KQs should be fine IP to call.

      After he potted flop I already was feeling trouble, but cmon I have TP, I have to call this.
      My turn action was damn spazzy again, no player would sacrifice all his stack to bluff and he should slow down with QQ/JJ with K on board, so I basically smell trouble here, but my damn mind told me I should call this against this guy, so I did, but... We all know 30 hands is not sample size to make good assumptions about players, so I now think should just fold it and wait for additional info and better spots. I think calling pre and flop overall should be fine, but folding turn seems better action.
      Getting too excited is bad and tilting is bad even more. Working on mindset is must have. :)

      Opinions welcome as always.

      I wouldn't call pre against 1st 3bet in 30 hands. I'd rather have 78s than KQs because KQ is dominated by his 3bet range. As played, turn is a clear fold. You probably played a bit tilted.

      I agree, tho I wouldn't call with 78s either against a 1st time 3-better.

      I don't hate your line tho, if you're confident he's just overall aggressive and might 3bet/pot/pot as often as he open-raises it's perfectly fine, it'll just be wrong against most players as there is quite a gap between deciding to open-raise less than stellar hands and 3bet/pot/potting some bluffs.


      Hope it helps.
