      Poker Stars $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 5 players -
      SB: $25.00 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 12, 3B: 7, AF: 2.2, Hands: 162
      Hero (BB): $25.00 -
      UTG: $20.25 - VPIP: 52, PFR: 19, 3B: 0, AF: 5.0, Hands: 21
      CO: $25.00 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 26, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 27
      BTN: $20.38 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 8

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with T :spade: T :heart:
      UTG calls $0.25, CO raises to $1.01, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.76, 1 fold

      Flop: ($2.37) Q :spade: J :spade: 7 :club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.49, Hero folds

      If I 3bet I think that I would isolate myself vs a better range of the UTG opener and scare the fish out of the pot.

      But if I call, I end up in 3 way pot usually and just set mine my TT OOP.

      What would be your play here?

      The bad thing here i think is that you have few hands against opponent.But with pfr of 26 you can easy 3bet from CO and BU open.
      As you see from this move he is isolating the fish (limper) IP.Maybe with a range of about 30%.You are ahead.And i think he would fold to your 3bet especially if you played tight the last minutes (from your move i think you did).
      If he had QQ+ or AK i think he would 4bet you have an easy fold there.I don 't think he would call a 3bet with these or worst hands.

      As played C/F is the only play with this drawy flop.Too many scary cards coming and flop easy hit his range pf.All you have there is backdoors flush and straight i think.

      I would 3bet pf from the beginning.

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Guess both ways are fine, as long we know that CO range is rather isolating range vs the limper then we could as well 3bet for value but then again we most likely have to fold to the 4bet without any dynamics.

      So could as well just Call and keep the fishy in the pot. And postflop we can't do much on such a horrible flop.

      Best Regards.
