      UTG ($54.06) 108bb
      UTG+1 ($54.46) 109bb
      hero (CO) ($109.19) 218bb
      BTN ($60.76) 122bb
      SB ($52.72) 105bb
      BB ($36.55) 73bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 6 players) hero is CO K:club: J:heart:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $1.50, hero raises to $4, 2 folds, BB calls $3.50, UTG+1 calls $2.50

      Flop: J:spade: 7:spade: 6:heart: ($12.25, 3 players)
      BB checks, UTG+1 checks, hero bets $7, BB folds, UTG+1 raises to $16.50, hero ??

      BB is a 69/0. MP is a wierd reg. Over 250hand sample 25/18 with 3% 3bet and 75% fold to 3bet, RFI MP 30%. No decent sample in 3betpot postflop stats.

      Pre: I think that 3betbluffing is the best option, cause villains range is wide and he's folding a lot to 3bets. Calling might also be fine, cause there arent any people with high squeeze% and there a big fish in BB, but anyways it opens an option to get squeezed and if the BTN calls im OOP with not so good hand multiway, so I preffer a 3bet.

      On the flop I cbet cause BB fish can easily call with worse like QJ, JT, 88-TT, some FD's.
      MP's range is also wider because of BB coldcall pre, so he can have quite similar range to the fish here. When I get raised I guess Im flipping against some draw or crushed so I opt to fold.

      I liked your reasoning and agree with your conclusions. Nice hand.

      Calling to get multiway with KJo is usually bad imo but your reasoning for 3betting is good.

      On the flop keep in mind UTG's range is now with almost all pairs and many suited connectors, broadways that hit that board very well so indeed it's a fold vs his raise and valuebetting is fine but make sure your sizing won't be too small. It does leverage stacks but you don't want him to correctly, so to speak, bluff you (correctly because you bet/fold too often). I think he is playing honest there but keep paying attention since he is a regular, you will face him in this spot over and over again.
