      Villain 21/17,PFR EP 9% fold to 3bet 89%, cbet 75%, AFq 46/38/26

      $0.15/$0.30 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players
      Hand Conversion Powered by weaktight.com

      UTG ($30)
      UTG+1 ($30)
      hero (CO) ($30.90)
      BTN ($16.25)
      SB ($51.46)
      BB ($30.75)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.45, 6 players) hero is CO Q:heart: Q:diamond:
      UTG raises to $1.20, 1 fold, hero calls $1.20, 3 folds

      Flop: 7:club: 2:spade: 4:heart: ($2.85, 2 players)
      UTG bets $1.65, hero raises to $6, UTG goes all-in $28.80, hero calls $22.80

      Is my line ok here? I dont 3bet pre, cause his EP range is very tight and he folds a lot to 3bets. I guess I could just call him down cause he seems very agrresive, but I choose to raise the flop cause I dont rep much on such a board, where I could easily call with any set, so I think that he might spazz out to a raise here and I think my image was quite bad so he might think Im bluffing.

      I mean you don't 3b him cuz he is tight from utg and folds a lot to 3b but then you go and do it on flop, for what reason? His range doesn't change from pf to flop it is still strong premiums, mid-low pairs and overcards.
      Your reasoning for raising the flop (that is to induce if I am right) is not very good, rather raise (if you have to balance on nl30) semibluffs and complete air. So again u mostly get action from what beats you and not the hands you beat.
      I would just call him down here, we shouldn't be afraid of 8cards we don't wanna see.

      Hello jachis,

      Don't like your play at all! You don't 3bet preflop although you do raise on flop? How many worse hands do you see paying you there? If you want to play for the stacks then 3bet preflop! Otherwise pot control -> way ahead/behind situation on flop.

      Best Regards.
