      Hello Kosand,

      Preflop: Why do you 3bet so small? You ain't even forcing him to fold AQ/AK type of hands and mainly just letting him call you with the hands what has you dominated.

      As played
      Postflop: You are showing weakness on the turn with your size, obvious that if he is aggressive he is going to take a stab on you. If you think you can get value there from worse then should Bet bigger to avoid bluffs vs you. This kind of sizing I would only pick with strong hands to induce him raise vs you if we assume he is aggressive on the turn.

      Best Regards.

      I think he can call a lot of worse hands than mine, I think about 8% hand range it would be because 16% * 0.52 = 8.32%. Am I wrong?

      So I would be beating a lot of hands and in position.

      I doubt that someone could fold AK/AQ to a 3bet in SH. At least a call or a push if AK

      It's an average PFR, it's not UTG. So from UTG I would assume it's even lower and mainly whatever he is raising from UTG, AT? That kind of hand rather folds. So what worse? Just KQ or something similar. Nor the 3betting size doesn't make sense either cause you wouldn't do so small with made hands.
