When you call the 3-bet and lead the flop youre essentially playing your hand against the board and not your opponents range. I think if you call the 3-bet, which is marginal, then I think we have to just call the flop and most likely the turn as well.
Couple things to think about when ur leading here which i think will help u realize why its not great..
- if he jams over top, what do you do?
- if he flats, what do you do on A,K,Q turns?
Basically, by leading we're only getting hands that we beat to fold except maybe AK.
I think Id fold flop but if I call Im just x/c all the way down
