      Pre: When BB 3b's I figure to be slightly ahead of his 3b range, assuming that 3% is a value range I am assuming villain is 3betting as a semi-bluff some of the time.

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    59.56%  52.78%   6.77% { AKo }
      UTG+1  40.44%  33.67%   6.77% { JJ+, AJs+, KJs+, QJs, JTs, AJo+, KQo }

      I could 4b since I think I am ahead but don't think villain ever 5b's worse and I dont expect villain to call much worse than JJ+ / AQs at very best.

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    40.63%  36.15%   4.48% { AKo }
      UTG+1  59.37%  54.89%   4.48% { JJ+, AQs+ }

      folding is too weak since I am obviously stealing a lot in these spots and villain is a TAGy player and I am in position. If I start folding AKo on the BU vs 3bets I think I am in for a rough time.

      Flop: I think he can have FD's, PP's + and complete air. Given villain's AF I think I could float, but it might become very expensive in a pot that has been bloated by a 3b.

      Hello muel294,

      Yeah, kind of close. While it's a FR I might even tend to play rather passively in those spots. It's of course true that they 3bet you lighter but overall on NL2 it might easily be the case that they tend just turn only value-hands there.

      But if I see him having rather bigger 3bet as he does then your play is also fine, either way Call or 4bet.

      Best Regards.
