    Hi sapines1001

    Shove or fold, but don't call! Calling villains raise is essentially like chucking money down the drain. The opener doesn't have many chips for us to win so even when we do flop a set (12% of the time) we wont benefit very much and a lot of the time we wont even get to stack him.

    If the 3x raise is villains standard raise size then I would shove all in and I'd expect him to fold more often than not, his stats are screaming at us to cram it on in him but if this the first time he's made a full 3x raise or you've only seen him 3x very strong hands then I would recommend taking the cautious approach and let him have it.

    Cheers, Chris.
