      Is a 3-bet more acceptible, considering that all the players behind me are at best 14/11 nits? The re-raise was for information, because i rarely see them betting only 1/2 with good hands...

      Bad raise because you have "fixed" and unknown showdown value - if he's got QQ you're making him fold (bad for you), if he's got AQ+ you're making him raise (bad for you). Just call it and re-evaluate turn. Let' put it like this - wouldn't you rather pay that extra dollar that you raised with (on the flop) to make an easy call on the turn, IF he keeps betting? Especially considering you're not getting too many hands that you beat to call you on the flop or any hands that have you beat to fold?

      In less words - way ahead or way behind concept, which almost always means "just call, don't raise"

      Cheers!

      Raising there is bad for you. He'll only call or raise better. You also are IP and can easily reevaluate on the turn.

      This. Value-raising TPGK there usually requires history or at least some read that villain is overplaying his hands.


      Hope it helps.
