      A slightly different situation that one of the examples in crushing NL50:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with AKo
      UTG+1 raises 2BB (min), UTG+2 calls, CO calls, Hero???

      If we just flat then are we missing a ton of value or are we just scaring away dominated hands?

      Same situation but with a different hand:

      Preflop: Hero is BU with JJ
      UTG+1 raises 2BB (min), UTG+2 calls, CO calls, Hero???

      Love to know what you guys think, thanks!

      Hi,

      both times you should 3-bet, since your hands are too strong to just play multiway pot and since UTG only min-raised he likely has there worse hand than yours.
      NL 2 players would often call 3-bets with very wide range and you can easily play for stacks if you hit overpair or tptk

      best regards,
