(its a 1$ 180 man non turbo)
I have a doubt about this hand, villian never made a 3 bet preflop in this table, i have saw him limping utg with aq very deep and calling a shove of 20bbs with that. In this spot i think is no sense is play in the turn, and taught that he was putting pressure with a big draw.
My opinion is that the fold was the better aproach, but i want some opinions on these.
The villian stats through 111 hands were vpip 26 , pfr 7 Agression 4.8 , cbet 50 , and 3bet 6,3 .

Hi scarface763!

Preflop, I'm going to make a standard raise, which for this blind level is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper.

When I flop top pair, I'm going to make a standard 1/2 pot value bet. The opp now min-raises me. I only have one pair with a good kicker, so I can easily be behind here (most likely outkicked). Due to this, I need to muck to the flop raise.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
