We are at the final table

Villain_2 is a pretty tight player but plays so bad post flop and also tries to steel the blinds

I wonder if i played correctly this hand becouse i was so stressed... if i wasent hit the 4 on the river i would fold at any bet

Hi sharp,

With 31bb's and facing a 3x I would just fold preflop. This hand is probably not profitable to flat with and 3-betting to resteal is a bit pricey given the 3x open. That being said, I think restealing is certainly not bad, considering:

-Villain is tight
-Villain is a wide stealer based on your read
-Villain is opening 3x indicating he's probably not that good, and thus will fold too much to a resteal.

Actually, I maybe talking myself into it. I'd be 3-bettin got about 3950, then if called, c-betting 4200... meh, that's 13.6 bb's which only leaves us with 17.4, really wish we had 35+ to start the hand. I don't hate it against this villain as described though, possibly worth the risk.
