      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is CO with A :spade: A :heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $1, 1 fold, MP1 raises to $3.75, 1 fold, Hero calls $3.75, 1 fold, SB calls $3.50, 1 fold, UTG+1 calls $2.75

      UTG is 35/5/31 after 37 hands.

      MP1 is unknown.

      What would you do preflop?? I thought that cold 4-bet would look here extremly strong so I decided to cold call 3-bet. Is this still better to 4-bet cold here or just to try to keep both fish in the hand???Flop standard???

      i 4b pf, u give too good odds to others. Also he's short and there no reason in slowplaying - he will play on stack w JJ+, AK anyway, maybe TT and AQ

      +1

      Plus, his 3-bet of a UTG open already looks very strong. Ideally you want to cooler or his AK/AQ hands preflop before they have a chance to miss the flop and get away with minimal investment. And if the UTG+1 raiser (tight fish) has a hand that he likes chances are he will come along for the ride.

      I like it
      4-bet looks very strong and likely I´d flat there with my whole range (TT+, AK)
      MP1 might get all-in pf QQ+, I think likely he would fold worse hands and utg you don´t mind since he is halfstack anyway.
      If you´re going to 4b then make it 8$. This way he would likely continue with worse range than QQ+ and you can sometimes make that also as bluff with AQ/AJ/KQ, but that case you have to call UTG shove
