      BB: $26.60 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 15, 3B: 0, AF: 0,2, Hands: 20
      UTG: $19.67 - VPIP: 40, PFR: 20, 3B: 17, AF: 0,0, Hands: 20

      Hero (SB): $26.61 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 18, 3B: 5, AF: 4,8, Hands: 90087

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is SB with K :heart: A :spade:
      UTG raises to $1, 3 folds, Hero raises to $3.25, 1 fold, UTG calls $2.25

      Flop: ($6.75) 2 :heart: 4 :spade: 2 :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks

      Turn: ($6.75) J :diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.25, Hero folds

      Villain seems to have a clue about the game but he doesn't seem like a very good player since he opencompleted the SB once before.

      Is 3Bet/fold a good line vs this guy given our lack of information about him? He may call with weaker hands but we have no reason to expect him to go broke very light UTGvsSB.
      Would flatting pre be extremely terrible?

      Hello Avatars91,

      You could even consider CBetting the flop cause you could be ahead with your Ace high. :) Though if you go for passive approach then not much to comment. 3betting is fine.

      Best Regards.
