      What about this hand?

      Is three-betting a raise from early position with JJ a bad play? Is there any +EV for going all in? My guess is that the 3-bet is marginal, but okay, and that going all-in is a coin flip, so better to fold.

      Hey John,

      You have PT3 so do you have any statistics on UTG?

      Generally UTG opens are very tight therefore we do not 3bet those with a hand like JJ because it easily is better than all the hands he is folding but certainly worse than the hands he is reraising us

      Best regards,
