      Hey,

      I just found this hand between my marked hand and I don't know why I fold pre :P . This is always a 3bet right?

      I don't think this is always a 3bet. A 21/19 player could open from UTG a 9-10% range and in that case I don't like the 3bet.

      You can 3bet, specially to "test" villain, but I don't think it's a must.

      Yeah, agree with this.

      You play normal tables, right? Well, to get information on villain's style you have to see how he reacts to aggression imo so I'd take as many hands as possible to 3bet pre and see reactions, especially at the beginning vs an almost unknown.

      In other words, I 3bet it vs an unknown if I didn't act too aggro and if I did act aggro, I know how he reacts to aggression and can decide to 3bet, call or even fold my hand now based on other factors at the table (apart from this particular villain).
