      I have few question...
      1. Do u think that I could have called his 4B?
      2. What about if he reraised me to:
      a. $2
      b. $2.5
      Would I be able to call his 4B?
      3. What range is 7% 4B?

      Hello BGawli,

      First of all why do you even 3bet against UTG range who seems to be pretty nitty. I am not really big fan of it, rather just Call it and play postflop.

      1. Do u think that I could have called his 4B?

      No way. :) We are just shipping it rather than Calling.

      2. What about if he reraised me to:
      a. $2
      b. $2.5
      Would I be able to call his 4B?

      Doesn't matter, either it's $1,8 ; $2 ; $2,5. Pretty much the same for everything, if you 3bet this as well means you want to go broke, therefore just ship it.

      3. What range is 7% 4B?

      Most likely UTG range will be towards a very strong hand and not just 7%. :) At the best you get a flip against AK and that's even likely at the best.

      Best regards.

      wow... are u serious with that I shouldn't 3B player with stats 17/13?

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 66.895% 66.31% 00.59% 1001374848 8902278.00 { QQ }
      Hand 1: 33.105% 32.52% 00.59% 491072724 8902278.00 { 77+, A8s+, K9s+, QTs+, JTs, ATo+, KJo+ }

      I know that with JJ it's a mistake but with QQ. This show me how much I have to learn.
      Of course I have to agree with u. Now I analyzed his play and I knew his betting habit. When he bet for 4xBB he's got JJ+, AQs+, AQo+.
      ok everything is fine when I'm IP but what to do if he bet 4xBB from CO&BTN for 4xBB and I'm holding AKs, AKo, QQ?

      You have to take into account that he won't be raising all his range (13% of hands) from UTG, he will almost certainly do it with the very top of that range, therefore 22+ or 77+ (depending on a player) and AJ+, which is 9% and 7% of all hands respectively.

      Plus, you can't just calculate your equity against his range and decide for a 3bet if you think you're ahead. You can't be sure you'll be able to get to showdown. The only way to make sure is to push pre-flop.
      Sometimes it's best to flat the raise, that being true especially against tight Early Position raisers when we're holding AK or QQ.

      That's my 5 cents, feel welcome to point out mistakes in my thinking.

      It's not only that we can't do that. But we just making worse hands to fold and better ones to continue. :) And your IP raise is a bit high as well, wouldn't be surprised that if he folds there AK/JJ.
