      UTG: $85.85 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 16, 3B: 11, AF: 7.0, Hands: 134
      Hero (CO): $48.07 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 18, 3B: 6, AF: 5.0, Hands: 55266

      BB: $25.00 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 10, 3B: 2, AF: 5.0, Hands: 171

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is CO with A :diamond: Q :diamond:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN raises to $2.40, 3 folds

      I see myself as being pretty weak in playing CO vs BU 3bet.

      I 4bet for value AK/QQ+ (sometimes JJ), 4bet bluff depending on the player and don't have much of a calling range. Should I make a calling range on suited broadways and some pockets in this spot against people that have a wide 3 betting range?

      Hi,

      I think calling there should be generally standard play. Can´t relaly put someone on AK or QQ+ if they have reasonable 3-betting range. You can ofcourse 4-bet, but if get shoved you´re at difficult situation.

      Oop also has one advantage, you can always lead out. For example on Qxx boards, low boards or maybe even Axx flops.

      Also I would likely not really planning to c/c once and then c/f on Qxx boards

      best regards,
