      UTG raises to $1.75, fold, UTG+2 calls $1.75, fold, fold, fold, Hero ?

      I think AKo is ahead of the UTG open raising range.
      Normal raise size is $1.75*4=$7.00. Usually, I shove preflop if the raise size is more than 1/3 of the effective stack(33%). $7/$20=0.35 ie 35%.
      How do you play this hand?

      Hey JHTAN,

      I would deviate from standard 3-bet betsizing and just 3-bet to 5-5.5$.

      I prefer the smaller 3-bet so you are more likely to get called by some weaker hand by fish(presuming UTG+2), but also preflop shove is +EV and well played.

      Best regards,
