      Viallain is an complete stranger.
      First question:
      When faced a 3bet from the BTN, would you be more inclined to flat or 4bet?

      My plan was actualy to 4bet and call a push. But since villain made a smallish 5bet, I thought that his range is more like QQ+.

      I feel I don't have any fold equity any more, wich means I get $7.75 to $11,50 (2,25 + 10 – rake). That means I need at least 41% equity to be break even. So, villain has to have a worse range than TT+, AKs.

      Question 2:
      Does the average villain have a worse range in this spot than TT+, AKs?

      Hello MonkySandwich,

      I rarely doubt that his range is going to be weak here, especially him 3betting vs the UTG. Therefore I'd rather just let the hand go while we don't know even the guy. We can't really Call being OOP nor doesn't make sense to 4bet for value.

      Best Regards.
