      Villain has 0% 3-bet in 27 hands

      What's the chance he could be raising with AK? just fold vs a low 3-bet range?

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with J, J.
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP1 folds, MP2 raises to $0.60, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.30.

      Hero checks, MP2 bets $0.80, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.35.

      Hey YinYangS,

      Just fold preflop according to the articles. When you face a 3-bet from an unknown(after 27 hands you can consider villain unknown especially if you need 3-bet that needs bigger sample size) it's best to stick to articles.

      Villain is very likely 3-betting AK as well, but the problem is even if he 3-bets JJ+/AK you don't have the necessary equity to go broke against him thus you should fold and continue with QQ+ only by going all-in preflop.

      Best regards,
