Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has A:diamond: T:heart:

fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.25, BTN raises to $0.80, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.55

Hero calls here, because this player seems to be 3Betting pretty aggressively especially in position. I'm assuming his range is pretty wide here (25% of hands).

Flop: ($1.75, 2 players) T:club: K:heart: 7:heart:
Hero checks, BTN bets $1.20, fold

BTN wins $1.67

$0.02 was deducted from the pot for the jackpot.

I hit 2nd pair which puts my hand at about 36% equity vs. the BU's pre-flop range. BU is CB'ing 100% of the time (small sample size). My gut was to fold; live to see another day, but in reviewing the hand history, I'm wondering if this was the right call. I'm out of position, so the last two streets become a bit more difficult to manage if I continue and don't improve. Pot odds are 29%, so if my hand equity vs. the assigned range is accurate (36%), then I should be calling in this situation. Am I on the right track here? Should I be looking this player up or bail on this hand and wait for a better opportunity to exploit his pre-disposition to 3Bet?

    Fold or 4-bet pre, leaning towards fold. His 3-bet stat is meaningless with this sample size. I think calling is my least favorite option. ATo doesn't flop well and is too easily dominated.
