      Hero (SB): $2.12 - VPIP: 23, PFR: 17, 3B: 6, AF: 2,4, Hands: 3844
      BB: $2.49 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 6, 3B: 0, AF: 5,0, Hands: 54
      UTG: $5.00 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 8,0, Hands: 34
      CO: $0.92 - VPIP: 55, PFR: 3, 3B: 0, AF: 1,6, Hands: 29
      BTN: $3.74 - VPIP: 38, PFR: 9, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 32

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is SB with A :diamond: J :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.06, CO calls $0.06, 1 fold, Hero?

      Can I 3bet for value? No.
      3bet bluff, make TT-JJ fold? I'm not sure.
      I'm going be to OOP multiway if I call, which is unpleasant-->fold?

      you can 3bet as a bluff here but at NL2 i dont think most players are folding JJ and TT
      so vs an unknown UTG open i would only 3bet for value.

      but i would never call here its either 3bet or fold.

      just fold against UTGs range here, your OOP and an easily dominated hand, easy fold IMO no point in getting mixed up, you can sqeeze here but i just dont think its profitable in the long run tbh

      also you have a blocker to JJ so thats just that little bit more unlucky he has that

      Hello Imimba1,

      Either Squeeze it or just fold it, our hand doesn't play well in multiway pots nor being OOP.

      Best Regards.
