      Villain is 25/13 over 87 hands.
      Is it a good hand to 3bet preflop in rush ? Basically I try to 3bet depolarisely against most players – premium range and some random hands with some blockers preferably. The hands I do not want to get all in preflop I just call IP if possible. Against some opponents ofc I can 3bet more for value even some hands like AJ, KQ ..

      Hello acceleration123,

      I wouldn't really recommend 3betting with such a weak hand vs a mid-stack -> indicates a fishy player or very loose. Therefore we can expect him to Call a lot of our 3bets and rather fold the hand.

      For example, against his range:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    32.04%  31.40%   0.64% { Jh3h }
      UTG+1  67.96%  67.32%   0.64% { 22+, A6s+, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, ATo+, KJo+, QJo }

      You see our J3 ain't doing that great but for example try with KTs, or even some better blocker type of hand you will get better equity. Therefore rather fold the hand against such a fish.

      Best regards.
