      Hero (SB): $25.97 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 18, 3B: 6, AF: 5.1, Hands: 51997

      UTG: $43.63 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 21, 3B: 0, AF: 0.8, Hands: 33

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with A :heart: Q :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.65, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.55, 1 fold

      Flop: ($1.55) K :diamond: 3 :heart: T :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.15, UTG calls $1.15

      Turn: ($3.85) 6 :heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.80, UTG folds

      Don't really know how to play OOP vs UTG raises. Can you give some guidelines on what kind of range should I call/3bet with against an average TAG?

      Chose to donk in this hand, don't know if donking would be better and why. Pro's and con's of one vs the other? Again assuming average TAG with high cbet flop as we usually have on this limit.

      Hi,

      I think call should be fine pf. You can always 3-bet but he would not call with worse hands and may 4-bet bluff you.

      I would 3-bet UTG range JJ+, AK and would not mix in bluffs, since UTG range generally is strong enough so I don´t expect him raise/folding that much

      Postflop leading flop and turn is fine. It seems better option than c/r or c/c where you can easily either barreled or building big pot not really knowing what to do on the turn if called.

      best regards,
