      Stacks:
      UTG giantswell ($24.34)
      UTG+1 Hero ($31.62)
      MP1 FancyLady001 ($67.18)
      MP2 rabarberdeg ($15.60)

      BTN DaBluffMaker ($9.55)
      SB Dualist ($31.53)
      BB Villa17 ($10.25)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.35, 9 players) Hero is UTG+1 A:diamond: A:spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.85, 1 fold, rabarberdeg raises to $2.90, 5 folds, Hero goes all-in $31.62

      Villain is playing 13/11 with a 3b of 5% (56 scenarios over 161 hands)

      When he 3bets me when I am UTG I am assuming, with his raisesize and his stacksize that he is willing to go broke and then he won't/shouldn't 3b/fold vs me when I am UTG even though I am opening about 9% (maybe more) in UTG. What is the best way to play the hand and why? Will he ever 3b/fold? If he is what hands would he do it with? Does he actually have a good reason to do so?

      he may 3b smt like AQ that he would fold to shove, so I don´t really like shoving there.
      I´d rather like him calling or shoving himself, so I´d make it 6.3$ and let him shove with his whole range
      I like 3-betting to get him all-in his whole value range, if you think he is bluffing then call pf is also fine and playing postflop

      Will he ever 3b/fold? If he is what hands would he do it with? Does he actually have a good reason to do so?
      - sometimes you see players 3b/folding and since they are folding you can´t really know what they hold :) . I think most hands are AQ/AJ that think they are now behind and don´t want to get all-in and reason why he should 3b/fold or 3b bluff at the first place can be a lot. most of them are, that he would just want to make plays against other players thinking he has a lot of fold equity
