      Hello, :)

      Villain is unknown.
      I believe If I 3bet preflop then most of the time the UTG will folds but I not happy if someone behind me overcall then 3 or more people see the Flop.
      Besides that, I want to balance my calling range against UTG open raising.
      I usually I only call UTG open raise with AK only. I think it is good to call with QQ+,AK.
      On the Flop, do you raise or call Flop then raise Turn?

      Thanks for any advice.

      I think raising the Flop is the best street you have to raise if you slowplay preflop :)

      If you raise the Turn your raising range becomes too strong hence you are isolating yourself against better
