      CO: $11.60 - VPIP: 16, PFR: 13, 3B: 0, AF: 2,7, Hands: 91

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BB with J :club: Q :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.20, 4 folds, Hero calls $0.10

      Flop: ($0.45) 5 :spade: A :heart: T :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $0.20, Hero raises to $1.10, UTG calls $0.90

      Turn: ($2.65) 8 :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.90, UTG folds

      Can I 3Bet for value here preflop? Villain's range is loose and it is a minraise. Or is it still not that great given that it is a UTG raise + he is not fullstacked, or can even be going broke light in that spot?

      As played: not sure if it makes sense to play back even with our GS + bakcdoor FD + sometimes possibly live overcard vs Tx additional equity. Villain can easily have Ax there, assuming that he still has at least some competency regarding position awareness and thus is raising a bit tighter from UTG, + it might be pretty tough to get him off certain hands such as Tx, or JJ–KK, or even GSs. Although his cBet is rather small and I do smell some potential weakness.

      Anyway, I don't think it makes sense to continue on the turn at all. We would be very lucky to have fold equity vs anything that called on the flop on such a blank turn card.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Preflop: Not really vs UTG range. By 3bet for value you mean 3bet/Broke? :D

      As played
      Postflop: Well, you don't need to Check/Raise this big vs his stack, 60-80 cents is enough and with extra equity on the turn I'd still keep barreling though would make it something like $1,60.

      Best Regards.
