      Hello,

      Preflop I prefer calling without much information.

      Cbetting the flop is fine.
      When he raises I don't mind folding because I am not sure if he raises any worse here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      As this is 3B pot, should not we CB less? Around 1.2, maybe?

      Villain still would fold his air.

      3bet preflop vs UTG with 99 will often be a mistake at micros. You might get away with it against a fish. But even if he makes a bad call with KTo you are flipping. If it turns out villain is not a huge fish you are isolating yourself against a range you don't beat by 3betting vs UTG.

      This is correct, but the reasoning might not be. You have an overpair, why would you want him to fold his air?

      I agree though, you should consider cbetting smaller in general. A great scenario for you is if villain peels once with overs + worse PPs, and then folds the turn. You make it easier for him to peel light with a smaller bet-size.

      Once villain raises, the fold is fine. He can have bigger pairs he just flat with preflop etc.

      Since this is a 3bet pot, we could easily bet closer to 1/2 pot since the SPR is smaller.

      $1.1-$1.2 will be good here.
