Yes, against a player that tight, even with a small sample, it's a good fold - you are not getting the proper 2-1 odds to call, and at best you'll be in a coinflip situation - and there's a chance you're dominated by a higher pair.

The more serious problem was opening pocket 3s out of position in the first place. If you get called, it's always gonna be hard to play post-flop unless you hit that 2 in 15 chance of a set.

Hi sapines1001

Folding preflop would be the best plan of action as our stack size doesn't warrant us to play this hand from this position. It's very likely that you're going to get action
when you raise from early position and with 33 and a 20 big blind stack we would be better off folding our hand because firstly it plays poorly post flop and secondly we will have to fold if one of the short stacks shoves on us.

As played though I think a fold is fine, I think it's close but I think folding is best. Cheers, Chris.
