      Preflop: Hero is BTN with 9:diamond: Q:diamond:
      UTG folds, MP raises to $1.50, Hero?

      Coaches in videos say that 3bet % should be at least same % as blinds, or even higher, i never could, so im looking were im missing spots.
      Its this one one of those spots?

      Hey Lunitis,

      3bet bluff here would be fine. You have the top of your folding range and MP has a high Ft3bet.

      Remember that it's villain dependent, there is no need to arbitrarily increase your 3bet% to a certain number. If it's a good spot take it - if there are no good spots, don't 3bet at all.
