      Hi.

      Preflop: I don't like the preflop 3bet if UTG is a tight reg. 3betting here is only acceptable if he is a fish (and defends wide vs 3bets) or he opens wide here.

      Flop: I think checking back is fine but you should have a plan on whether you can value bet Turn or River, and also you should have decided how many streets you were willing to bluff catch on. I don't think you can value bet at any point in time, especially on the Rivered King.

      How come JJ 3bet is bad, my 3bet will be extremely low like 2% of all hands if i 3bet only QQ, KK, AA. And my range will be easy readable and polarized or i am mistaking help please?

      Thanks

      Well are you even 3betting any bluffs here in these positions? If you add JJ here, you just have a 3% 3betting range consisting purely of value hands. I still think that's really easy to play against.

      A better 3b range would be maybe 5%, where you have some bluffs mixed in as well.

      Anyway, this really depends on how wide UTG opens. If he opens really tight, maybe like 13% or less, I think you may just want to have no 3betting range at all (or a really narrow 3bet range of 2-3%, comprising only bluffs). You can just flat all your monsters.

      Thanks.
