      3betting seems good, utg can still call with lots of dominated hands, and co is hardly ever very strong

      Hello Farmarchist,

      What was the plan with the 3bet here? Did you plan to play for the stacks?

      Best Regards.

      No because UTG will like to call 3bets but only 4bet strong hands.

      What makes you think that he calls you preflop? :P With his stack he has rather little room for calling, so clearly if you don't 3bet it for value then calling > 3betting.
