      Hello faronel,

      Preflop: Wouldn't say like it's very standard 3bet vs UTG range. UTG range is often times very strong and therefore I'd even prefer maybe just Calling unless I know the opponent has been raising a lot of hands.

      As played
      Postflop: As I said his UTG range can be pretty strong and as he even Calls then it's really up to the opponent. What kind of player is he? Does he Call with very wide range, have high VPIP? Or rather tighter side. Against more tighter opponents I'd basically just Check/Fold the flop because I don't expect them to Call you with a lot worse holdings.

      Best regards.
