      I thought his range was too strong. If so, should I only cryfold preflop?

      Hi Gonchan,

      I think that both calling and folding are fine options. On one hand we have position and dominate his potential bluffs hands (Ax hands, Kx hands) and on the other hand he 3-bets SB vs UTG which is generally the strongest of 3-bets.

      Given that he has been a bit more active so far (so not a complete nit) I would lean towards calling and playing IP. As played folding the flop is perfectly fine.
