We're 110bb deep, we put in 15bb pre.
At this point we have 95bb left but we're not too bothered because there's "only" 2 bets left?
And that means his positional advantage doesn't mean as much?
Even though he knows *exactly* what we have?
Come on man.... we're playing with our hand face up, and he has position on us and there's 85bb left. It doesn't get any worse than this!
Even if he is raising > 30%, AA73 suited to the 7 is not crushing him, we're *not* extracting tons of value by 3 betting.
Making 1 out of 2 players fold, some of the time, isn't really that great an achievement either, not in this situation.
Now on the flop, what hands that we beat are going to put 85bb in? KQ23?
If we bet flop and turn is a scare card (which is a massive chunk of the deck btw), what then?
Do we just give up, or do we get stubborn and stack off no matter what?
The 15bb preflop reraise for thin value (I assume its thin value, there's no other reason) just doesn't come anywhere close to justifying the postflop situation, which is frequently awful.
