      Hi Mrbeast,

      Preflop: What sample are these hands over? What's his 3-bet % like (from blinds to MP)?

      Most often people have a somewhat tight 3-bet range, especially nitty guys, in positions like this. However you are in the hijack so you are much closer to the BTN and thus can still incur some 3-bet bluffs.

      If villain 3-bets a lot then both calling and 4-betting are fine.

      Postflop: As played what's the purpose of our raise? What range did we put villain on and expect to stack off versus us here? Or did we just look at the fact that we have TPTK and went with the hand?
