      MP: $19.20 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 13, 3B: 6, AF: 2.0, Hands: 54
      CO: $10.15 - VPIP: 43, PFR: 21, 3B: 0, AF: 2.3, Hands: 28
      BTN: $7.03 - VPIP: 35, PFR: 9, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 69
      Hero (SB): $10.82 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2.0, Hands: 59648
      BB: $1.94 - VPIP: 44, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.4, Hands: 16
      UTG: $5.49 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 1.0, Hands: 26

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with A :heart: K :diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.90, 1 fold, UTG calls $0.60 Very difficult situation. If I call and hit TPTK, I dont think worse hands are going to pay me up. So not a good idea. He raises from UTG, so that is even more threatening.

      Can I 3bet for value? NO
      Can I 3bet bluff? Well, it's possible he folds 99-JJ. if he folds AQ we are happy aswell.
      Or better to call, and catch a bluff if we hit TPTK.

      Or just fold to avoid all this mess, ah

      Hi Imimba1,

      Preflop: UTG is also short so I don't mind raising for value here. I can see him going with worse. However we can also call since BB is a fish and shorter. So we can let him try to squeeze over us and then we can go with the hand.

      Why can't we 3-bet for value? Because we have 26 hands and his stats are 27/4? Since when are 26 hands a sample size?

      We should never 3-bet as a bluff this hand, not against a mid stack.

      From recently I have a big urge to just call with AK vs decent people. (Since Nikachu Cardrunners video . From 4:00, it's short, I think very interesting )

      I mean, there are very valid points here. What do you think?

      There are spots where you can call for sure, no doubt about that (and I advocate this as well) but I don't believe it should be the rule, at least not at sh.
