      Preflop: Hero is SB with A 9
      UTG raises to $0.20, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.60, BB folds, UTG calls $0.40

      UTG showed 5 3 and won $14.43 ($6.75 net)
      Hero mucked A 9 and lost (-$7.68 net)

      This hand got me very tilted which resulted to much more mistakes later on.

      My process thinking:

      I 3bet light preflop and I know that on a general term he will 3bet his QQ to AA. Vilain flats.

      He calls on the flop and shoves the river. I feel that with anything from 99 to JJ he will be reraising on the flop so I exclude that from his range most of the times. If he has Ax I am ahead. I am also feeling that he might have a flash draw, at least the line of his play is similar so I call.

      Result as shown above.

      Any thoughts?

      Against an unknown opponent I'd just muck this hands preflop.
      If you are going to 3bet make it at least $0.8.

      On the flop betting is fine.

      As played on the flop, bet/calling turn is close but I'd probably call too.
