      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.40, fold, Hero raises to $1.30, fold, fold, UTG+1 raises to $2.80 (AI), Hero calls $1.50

      He is unknown. What is the best play there - widen up 3bet range or call with a plan to go broke on most flops? Probably better 3bet preflop, because on flop he will fold his wak hands and call with good ones.

      If we 3bet him we should call his shove as we have needed equity against a range of TT+/AK and he may shove even wider than that, like worse PP or AQ.

      And I think we can't just call preflop as there are many bad flops for us and he is shortstacked so we can't setmine and there's no space for moves postflop if you intend to make any.

      Overall I'd say it's fine, but you can't be wrong folding this preflop.

      Good luck!
