PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed)

Hero (MP1) ($37.69)
MP2 ($25)
CO ($47.09)
Button ($42.55)
SB ($21.06)
BB ($25.35)
UTG ($35.75)
UTG+1 ($25.82)

Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A, A
2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, 4 folds, BB calls $0.50

Flop: ($1.60) 6, 4, 9 (2 players)
BB checks, Hero bets $1.25, BB raises to $3.70, Hero raises to $13, BB raises to $24.60 (All-In),

No history, villain is 21/17 over 35 hands

As played, is there any merit to 3 betting and once he shoves can we get away from it?


Bracelet Winner

I really dislike 3betting flop. We are really overplaying our hand.

This is an extremely good board for his range. It's also really bad having the As because it takes away a lot of his semi-bluffing combos.

As played, I would flat the flop and reevaluate based on the turn. Obviously we can call any spade turn, but also any board pairing card would be fine to continue on.

Once you have 3b the flop and put $13 in, you probably have to call, but since it's a parlay of your flop mistake i don't think it's worth discussing too much.
