      Hello Imimba1,

      Preflop: What's the reason for opening from UTG? Why 3bb?
      Postflop: I'd instead turning my hand into bluff-catcher just 2nd barrel it if I went for value.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks for you feedback Veriz!

      Preflop: Limp/call<OR imo. So many rocks and TAGS around here, they fold anyway. If not, then a CBet usually is enough. Even fold is better then limp/call.
      Why is 4BB better then 3BB? One who calls 3BB, calls 4BB as well, and vice versa. Yes, the BB gets 33% odds, but he will be OOP, so it's not so bad for me.

      Thanks for you patiance and understanding! :heart:

      The case with 3bb open is that if you have a strong hand you just leave them option to call loose vs you. Also what we actually want with our stronger hand is to get value. On those stakes I'd advice to have default UTG range as 4bb. From NL25 or something similar you can start adjusting to 3bb etc.
