I put a small reraise on the flop to isolate as initial raiser is fish, but more importantly guy to my left has the button and has a 3bet% there of 11% and this is a great opportunity for him to bet so I wanted to shut him out.

My thinking was I didn't want to shove so he folds out his strong hand, rather reraise such that he is pot committed by the river and shove there. I check back as there are too many fh combos now and he could easily have checked it expecting me to bet given my aggression. Should I have just shoved the turn?

Hi pockettones

I'm not sure I like the 3bet preflop. We have a hand that can play well multiway and with the stack depth I'd prefer just calling if I plan to play this hand vs a MP open. You do have some sound reasoning why you 3bet because of the player behind you but I'm not sure if our raise is a value 3bet or a bluff 3bet. Though you have labelled the initial raiser as a recreational player I'm not sure what worse hands can they call with when we 3bet them. As played, there is 16.9$ in the pot and we have ~12$ when we call the turn bet so I would rather get the rest in OTT because we can get called by two pairs, and sets but some of those hands might fold to a scare river card specifically a heart.

Okies thanks. I 3bet mainly to isolate as I expect recreational players to call very wide and also make lots of calling mistakes postflop if I make a strong hand.

I think flatting is better to invite the btn is who looks like a fish.
