      Hello Backcushion,

      Preflop: The problem with 3betting against UTG range is that he will often either Call hands like JJ, QQ or just 4bet with KK+ and we would be in ugly situation. Therefore Against such nitty opponents I'd rather not 3bet at all. Rather just Call and play against him postflop, for the given reason that he should be pretty easily playable according his WTS and also I likely think that he ain't CBetting that often.

      As played
      Postflop: As long such opponents very often have a PP in this kind of situations and they are Calling more often 3bets with them then I'd rather just Check/Fold the flop and hope to see a free card. Although against some opponents CBetting should be totally doable who's calling range is much wider, depends on the Call 3bet stat.

      Best regards.
