It is $11 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack.

Should I 3-bet or just call this min-raise ?

If raise then how much and what should I do if I get 4-bet?

Hi adikumar2010!

With AKs and a raise in front of me, I'm going to make a standard 3-bet to 315 (3X the previous bet).

I flop TPTK on a board with a flush draw and since I 3-bet preflop, I'm absolutely going to lead the flop with a standard value bet of 1/2 pot (324 chips).

I now get min-raised by the opp. This is most likely going to be from a flush draw, so I'm going to call the raise and re-evaluate on the turn.

My plan for the turn is to make a standard 1/2 pot value bet on a non-diamond and to check/fold to another diamond.

With a 1 pair hand, my hand is not strong enough to 3-bet (want 2 pair or better) and if I did so, it's a snap-fold to a 4-bet.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
