      3bet bigger ~.18 pre even if you are IP because the pot has 1bb extra from the limper. It's not a rule but it gives opponents worse odds. Here I think I would call very often. SDs, FDs any overpair on a flop that doesn't hit your 3betting range looks good for shoving there.

      I'd call also, because your small 3bet gave him odds for a call with all PPs (not that he would have folded them on a slightly bigget 3bet :) ), and, like said before, the flop is not good for a pf 3bettor so he might do this with 66 or 88+. Sure, sometimes he has a set or QQ+, but I doubt he has those and betting them so big unless I've seen him doing this before.

      I tend to agree with previous posters with bigger 3bet pre, but I think bout calling that shove. Overall it makes sense if he's capable of shoving worse hands and draws here, but there are players that just doesn't know what to do and how to play this and shove it in your face with their nuts because it's 3bet pot and you did bet on the flop.
      I don't see folding as a sin here if you have good reasoning to do that. You are behind overs+FD, set, combo draws and he may have them as your 3bet was smallish and stacks deeper than 100BB.

      Hi,


      Heed previous posters' advice about your 3-bet sizing preflop and make it a default size for you.

      Postflop hard to say without any kind of read. You'll find players only capable of check/shoving with hands that crush you and others that will do it with anything remotely-decent looking. Since you did make it very cheap preflop and he could be in there with lots of crap hands I'd probably also default to calling it off without being happy about it.


      Hope it helps.
