      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: Same as with the other hand there are many better hands to 3-bet with. However in this case we at least have position so we have more FE both preflop and postflop.

      Once our image becomes more aggro we should stick to 3-betting hands with more postflop playability especially OOP.

      against unknown, the best play is 3betting only for value and never should light 3 bet?

      No, unless the unknown has a shorter stack and seems fishy.

      We can still 3-bet light but we want to pick up spots where our FE is greatest and of course hands that still have playability if called. So usually we are talking about suited connectors, gapers, suited aces, etc.
