      Do you think preflop 4bet/broke would be +EV here? Villain's BTN 3bet is 8%, but definitely not against an UTG opener... I try to avoid the mistake (?) I see from many regs, that I 3bet their UTG open with AA/KK/bluffs, but frequently flat AK/QQ, and they tend to push their AK/QQ into my KK+ range over and over again.

      Is calling a good option here? We will be oop, but pot odds is 31% preflop, and we have 40% against a QQ+/AK range.
      As he cbets a lot in 3bet pots, flop is a no-brainer call I guess, but what would you play on the turn? He's not very keen on 2nd barreling, but we have an overpair+openender. Turn pot odds is 25%, and against a QQ+/AcKc/AdKd range we have 27%, but we have to fold many river if he shoves...

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      I'd most likely play the same way cause I assume his BTN 3betting range isn't going to be always vs UTG that high unless you have some other reads on him. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
