      Stacks:
      UTG ($5.64) 141bb
      HERO (UTG+1) ($4.22) 106bb
      CO ($4) 100bb
      BTN ($3.57) 89bb
      SB ($4) 100bb
      BB ($9.25) 231bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is UTG+1 Q:club: Q:diamond:
      UTG calls $0.04, HERO raises to $0.20, 3 folds, BB raises to $0.72, UTG folds, HERO?

      Villain is 25/16, 3B from BB:11%(9), total: 5%, AF: 1.1, 108h

      First of all, hand sample is tiny to really think that BB is 3-betting on the lighter side. Sizing also is pretty big for a bluff. My image was fine, he was not making any moves either.

      His postflop AF might translate to pre-flop as well.

      Should I just call, as he would be playing fit/fold on the flop?
      I need 33% equity vs his range. VS QQ+, AK I get 40%.

      Hey dienaszaglish,

      I would consider folding preflop

      Firstly you are MP. Secondly you make it 5x and BB makes a huge 3bet. His range could even be KK+ here.

      Also assume he does have AK, QQ+. The times he has KK+ you can potentially lose a big pot, while the time he has AK you probably won't make anything. Your calculation of needing 33% equity against QQ+,AK was correct, but that is only 100% true if you are closing the action.

      I would not assume he is playing fit/fold on the flop. The trend amongst most micro-stakes players is to cbet practically everything in 3bet pots. If you are going to call you should at least call the flop, then give up to a turn barrel.
