no reads on villain 10
villain 3 is a reg with with 3bet of 5.6%

i dont think he would put almost half of his stack in, without a big hand. even i fold i will still be 5th in chips, so i dont think i should risk it
so for the above reasons this is a fold, right?

Hi Espada_Nu.4

I fold!

The original raisers opening size is quite large (3x), so for a reg to be 3betting this raise size is a sign of genuine strength. The regulars 3bet sizing is on the large size too 'he has has almost committed half of his stack', this tells me that he has a hand that he is prepared to play all his chips for.

We aren't short in chips either. We have time to find better spots to get our money in.

Cheers, Chris.
