      PokerStars - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: $7.08
      UTG: $6.37
      MP: $11.00
      CO: $8.22
      BTN: $14.10
      Hero (SB): $10.08

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has Q:spade: Q:club:

      UTG raises to $0.30, fold, fold, BTN calls $0.30, Hero raises to $1.00, fold, UTG calls $0.70, fold

      Flop: ($2.40, 2 players) 2:club: J:diamond: A:club:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $1.70, fold

      This is a reasonably regular situation for me. Villain was 17/10 over 106 hands.

      I squeeze pre for value, BTN is able to stack off with worse and if not, I can scoop the dead money in the pot. When I am called by UTG im putting him on AQ+,JJ and possibly TT exactly. Would you agree with such a range?

      Should I be 3betting UTG with that hand if the pot was heads up?

      On the flop, is it even worth cbetting? Taking his range, he made it with everything but TT, and all we can count on is 2 outs + backdoors

      Hello esuohdla,

      Preflop: Vs the 3bet + 1 call I'd definitely go for bigger raise ~$1,50 and most likely plan to go broke vs UTG stack.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to do here, doubt that we are making any better hands to fold and not that many worse are around.

      Best Regards.
