      Hello member001,

      Preflop: 3bet it bigger cause you are giving good odds to set-mine.
      Postflop: Well, as said you give good odds preflop but again we can't get away while he could as well have Qx hands which are overplayed.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks. I think I have a leak with my standard 3x 3bet in these situations. What is a better size to 3bet here? With 100bb stacks, UTG open raises to $0.30, should we raise to more like $1.30?
      Presumably we also raise to that same size with our AK / bluff hands too (although we don't expect to be light 3betting vs UTG too often, so it's maybe not a problem)?

      Being IP I'd usually do it like $1,10 and being OOP I'd go for 4x raise. If it's a min-raise then even bigger depends also on the stacks.

      Yes, I'd usually raise the same amount cause I would assume with AK we also often times 3bet for value if we going for 3bet in those spots.
