      Villain is 20/16, RFI UTG 19%, fold to 3bet 85%. What range would you 3bet here? I like to use a very polarized range as villain is not overly tight but folds a lot. I dont expect to be able to profitably 3bet/shove against this villain cause he doesnt 4bet much either.

      On the flop I really dislike my play cause basicly isolate myself against better range and I think he folds all worse draws. Against QQ+,TT,55,33,7c6c I have 45,5% so I guess its not that bad as he folds a lot on the flop too.

      Against this above average loose UTG (I'd say 15% is close to average in UTG, prob a bit tighter is average nowadays) that folds to 3bets I would go very polarised and heavily weighted towards hands too weak to call. I sometimes might consider 3betting just bluffs if I think he will not pay off unless it's a KK+ vs KK+ situation.

      Regarding flop play, I like just flatting IP with your hand. He barrels A, K, sometimes clubs with BDs. You don't get 3bet by worse draws imo, game is not aggressive enough so you indeed just isolate yourself usually. It's probably still +EV to have it in your raising range but it's more +EV to just flat.
