second hand i think you should be 3 betting opponents with history all the time , again i'm not sure of the raise size but i think you should be 3 betting this spot all the time .
I think I agree with you. I was concerned about pushing preflop given villians loose calling range. His mp raise was 2.5 BB. His range was any pair, AT+
so I didn't want another race, and I was dominated vs big pairs, AK and AQ.
I doubt by 3betting I get him to fold in position. So I believe the end result is the same.
Donk betting all in on flop is poor just because I do not get value from worse hands. But given the cards, unless I was just going to play survial mode to move up a pay jump of about $3.7K, I probably was going to lose all my chips anyway.....
This was live event and I had no history on villian with the exception of first hand...
