      MP 446 hands, 25/17 cbet 70, fold to 3bet 81, 4bet 0
      SB unknown

      Is it ok 3bet against MP because he folds so much to 3bet, and if I call 44 and miss I cant continue. Also, since MP is not 4betting but calling with strong hands, 44 is ok, because sometimes I will hit set, and I can take free card on flop, so I would see 4 cards before giving up.

      If you think UTG gives up super often and want to create a dynamic with him sure, just 3bet just about any hand you can play vs him. I usually don't use small pairs but with position against a easy to read opponent almost nothing playable will be -EV, just a matter of maxEV which is very dynamic so if the dynamic you create is right, having pairs is maxEV when you 3bet.
