      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BB with J :club: A :heart:
      UTG raises to $0.15, 2 folds, BTN calls $0.15, 2 folds
      OOP I dont think I can 3b this vs 2 opponents. I dont have enough FE vs 2 players. Vs BU no problems, he's passive, but if UTG calls, I expect BU to call aswell.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: Why don't we have enough FE? You actually have more FE in squeeze spots and you are 3-betting UTG from the blinds, so normally you will get more respect. Of course if we expect calls (but we shouldn't expect a ton here) we should look to 3-bet hands like suited connectors but here we have at least some blocker value and we can pick this pot up preflop or flop.

      I'd make it 0.6 or so.

      Dont SCs play bad in 3b pots? (little SPR)

      They play bad if you play them for their implied odds, which I hope we wouldn't be. Anything that plays for implied odds benefits from bigger SPR.
