      Villian is playing 12/7 3betting 5.9%, cbetting 100 and agression factor of 2.3. Sample size is only 60 hands

      Not sure exactly what i don't like about my line here, the deepstacks make it a bit tricky. Calling a 3bet OOP ok in this spot? any advice is welcome here.

      3betting 5.9% over 60 hands doesn't mean he is a 3bet monkey, he may just be running hot and getting cards, because overall 12/7 stats are far from loose guy, so I wouldn't count him as standard 3bet bluffer. And I suppose you counted in this hands 3bet aswell, so let's assume he had chance of 3betting in 40 cases and he did that in 2 (2/40=0.05=5%). Not too much, right?
      So overall against such a guy I like folding pre being OOP as there are a lot of bad cards out there and 4betting would instantly leave us with top of his range. If we were IP and we had some idea about his playing tendencies calling would be a better option.
      As played with calling pre I wouldn't raise flop. He will fold AK/AQ and stack off with AdKd/AdQd/QQ+ anyway, so we are damn dead here. If you think he is full of shit, just call the flop and re-evaluate turn.

      Good luck!
