      CO: $5.48 - VPIP: 17, PFR: 15, 3B: 9, AF: 1.8, Hands: 151
      BTN: $0.70 - VPIP: 46, PFR: 12, 3B: 3, AF: 1.4, Hands: 371
      Hero (SB): $8.28 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2.0, Hands: 62509
      BB: $4.90 - VPIP: 13, PFR: 9, 3B: 4, AF: 3.0, Hands: 64
      UTG: $5.00 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 14, 3B: 4, AF: 3.5, Hands: 294

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is SB with K :heart: A :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.15, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.15, Hero?
      My main problem is, that if I 3bet and we go to the flop, I'm going to be OOP. I look like a normal TAG in UTG's eyes, so I think it's better to just call. (I really dont wanna get called, and play OOP)
      I mean, I wouldnt 3bet too much: they would fold, and I dont need AK for that.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: We can easily 3-bet for value here and BTN is super short and fishy. I want him to call/shove over me with a wide range against which is a big favorite.

      And with the 3-bet we make UTG fold a good portion of his range that still has good equity versus us.

      $$$

      If we get called we can still play postflop and c-bet bluff many boards.
