It is $5.50 Super Stack tournament on FTP with 12min slow blind level and 5000 starting stack.

I am 24/34. 27 places are paid.

What should I do here?

================================================== ====================

I played 1 hand with him where he used exact same 3-bet size but I folded that time exactly same scenario few hands back.

I folded in this hand no matter how good the price he was giving.

TBH I would call the first hand already with that price and 2nd hand I am for sure calling, to me looks like he is using your previous raise/ fold to gain more chips. 99% sure im wrong again lol

Double Bracelet Winner

Hi adikumar2010!

With AQ and 33BB, when it folds to me, I'm definitely going to make a standard raise.

I now get standard 3-bet by the button. AQ against this opp's 3-betting range is not ahead (so I don't want to 4-bet), but it's too strong here to fold, so I'm going to call and re-evaluate after the flop.

If I was well ahead of the opp's range, then I'd consider 4-betting, but not when I'm behind.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
