      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, A.
      UTG1 raises to $0.40, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.40, MP3 calls $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, BB folds, UTG1 raises to $13.96, 3 folds, 2 folds, Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $2.9.

      HEM info:
      UTG1 VP$IP:18/PFR:14/AF:2/3bet:11/fold 3bet:75/4bet:25/EP PFR:12/after 258 hands

      What should i do in this spots? call with good pot odds, although i would be OOP; fold or go for 3bet? My opponent has EP PFR 12% and i think that he has some hands which he can still fold or i'm wrong and i should don't try to make 3bet in these situations on opponent with EP PFR 12%~?

      Hello valancius,

      That's the reason why I don't like 3betting against UTG range, often times we face a pretty strong hand. Therefore I'd rather just fold it to avoid further mistakes in such a multiway pot, which we could easily do. Although if you have some better postflop skills then you can also consider playing postflop.

      Best regards.
