      We are on BB vs BU who plays after 33 hands
      VP 33/PFR 27/ 3Bet 13

      Is it reasonable to 3-bet him here and call shove?

      Hi!

      Imo it is not a good idea to play aggro against a calling station/maniac/fish with medium pp. They usually have no feeling about hand eq preflop and just call allover the place which leaves you in the dark when the overcards hit the flop. And when pushing you usually isolate yourself against his better range which at best leaves you flipping (except if he is a total aggro maniac who pushes all Ax`s or worse).
      I see it is a hard spot cuz you can`t really call for set value. Well maybe you can if he plays flops passively enough.

      Let`s see what the judges will say.

      he can shove there really a much wider range than yours TT
