      BTN: $2.38 - VPIP: 10, PFR: 3, 3B: 0, AF: 1.5, Hands: 29
      SB: $2.00 - VPIP: 15, PFR: 8, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 13
      BB: $4.63 - VPIP: 64, PFR: 11, 3B: 8, AF: 1.5, Hands: 53
      Hero (UTG): $2.20 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2.1, Hands: 32647
      CO: $2.00 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 14, 3B: 7, AF: 7.5, Hands: 180

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with K :spade: J :diamond:
      Hero raises to $0.06, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.06, 1 fold, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.19) J :heart: Q :club: 8 :spade: (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.12, BTN raises to $0.30, Hero?

      A weak raise to my weak CB. Sample too little, Villain could have many weaker hands, which just sensed weakness.

      Hello Imimba1,

      Fold? :) That's its, why would you want to continue there? Explain me.

      Best Regards.

      Is a 3bet good?
      -Can I bluff? -Only against AJ, so NO.
      -Can I bet for value? -Dont think that a weaker hand than Qx is going to continue, so NO.
      All in all, we shouldnt 3bet.

      Can I call? Well, while he's a nit, might be safer to lay it down. Though I'd consider calling once, and folding to 2ndbarrel, his 3bet size looks weak. Or from his POV, it isnt, it's 2,5* my bet size. He could do it with small PPs, sensing weakness. I mean, he either ch.raises with straight/2p, or little pair. Little pair is more probable I think.

      You are rarely making better hands to fold and 3betting is out of question cause you would just isolate vs strong hands. Nor you can't Call here cause we have really little information to even make assumptions of him bluffing.
