      when i 3 bet here, am i doing it for value or as a bluff, im not prepared to go all in with it if villain 4 bets me or shoves, and dont think i wanna call a 4 bet but not sure.?

      is this a bad flop to c-bet, as viaalin seems like he mite be a reg and could be calling with QQ or JJ maybe KK, even JQ would call my c bet.?

      Hi Lokkk,

      I think that given our opponent raises UTG we are turning our hand into a small bluff and I'd rather call and allow the fish behind us to call. If we have a read that UTG3 is a fish then 3-betting for v alue/isolation is fine.

      As played the flop is fine to cbet on, we have a couple of backdoors and overcards.
