      Should I 3bet AK this kind of player, which doesn't fold to 3bet that often and doesn't fold to cbet alot either? Is it better to just call preflop when in position?

      UTG: 32/22/60/33/2,8/400 (VPIP/PFR/FT3B/FTFCB/AF/H)

      $0.02/$0.04 No Limit Holdem

      Hero (CO) ($5.59)
      BTN ($5.36)
      SB ($4)
      BB ($1.58)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) Hero is CO A:club: K:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.12, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.36, 3 folds, UTG calls $0.24

      Flop: J:spade: 3:spade: 7:diamond: ($0.78, 2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero checks

      Turn: 9:diamond: ($0.78, 2 players)
      UTG bets $0.58, Hero folds

      Final Pot: $1.36

      UTG wins $1.31 (net +$0.37)

      Hero lost $0.36

      Hello Alleen86,

      Depends really how easily we can make him fold postflop? I mean if he is going to showdowns a lot then I would even consider just calling rather than 3betting. But of course 3betting is fine as well.

      His range change may still consist of a lot of broadways which even didn't hit and to avoid him taking stabs into the pot I would CBet here. But of course Checking behind is fine as well but then we very likely just have to fold it on turn.

      Best regards.
