      Hello joeldowey123,

      Preflop: Depends what kind of 3bet range does he have? It could be easily even the spot where it might be safer to fold the hand and rather avoid any further mistakes.

      As played
      Postflop: Once again depends what kind of 3bet range do you put him on? But if he has some tighter 3bet range then I don't like raising it here. And basically even turn it's rather a fold for me:

      Board: J:heart: K:heart: T:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    67.99%  56.50%  11.50% { TT+, AQs+, AQo+ }
      UTG+1  32.01%  20.51%  11.50% { AhKc }

      As you see our equity on flop ain't that great. And even worse on turn:

      Board: J:heart: K:heart: T:club:  7:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    72.46%  62.03%  10.43% { TT+, AQs+, AQo+ }
      UTG+1  27.54%  17.11%  10.43% { AhKc }

      That's why I'd even consider folding or other option would be to know the opponent better.

      Best regards.
