      utg 190 hands/ 24/18/
      mp 651 hands/ 21/18
      bu 128/ 31/20
      sb 16/40/0

      Is this a good spot to 3bet? Looking back I don't like it so much because if I get called I'm in a pretty bad shape.

      What about the amount - $2,20 better?

      With which hands would you advise this move? QQ+ only?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      I'd definitely squeeze bigger ~$2 at least. I am not saying it's even wrong. Doing it for fold equity it's totally fine while you even have somewhat reasonable players in the hand. Folding might be also too weak while CO could easily be even opening a lot wider range. We can't just Call the hand anyways, we either squeeze it or just fold.

      Best Regards.
