      How should I treat UTG's raise here? Should I treat it with the same respect as an EP PFR or should I treat it as if he raised from the CO since we are now 4 handed?

      I'm pretty sure calling OOP without the initiative is probably the worst line here. So it should be an easy 3b preflop right? but do I play 3b/fold or 3b/broke? Would we expect him to 4b shove with KQ+/AT+? If not I am flipping mostly for about 50bb.

      Hello muel294,

      Well, do you think you have an advantage on the opponent? If you do so then playing the hand is still possible and even profitable. Another option would be 3bet/Fold and pick the easy line. :)

      Best Regards.

      Yeah I think I should mostly 3b/fold here since I expect him to call with worse but only 4b with hands that beat me.

      If villain has a full stack I think I might be able to flat call preflop OOP as I will have more options postflop, i.e c/rai bluff if I miss. I just dont feel comfortable playing hands OOP without the initiative.

      thanks
