      UTG: $10.84 (108.4 bb)
      MP: $14.24 (142.4 bb)
      Hero (CO): $10.10 (101 bb)
      BTN: $12.07 (120.7 bb)
      SB: $13.80 (138 bb)
      BB: $1.91 (19.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K Q
      UTG raises to $0.35, MP folds, Hero???

      28/25 over 61 hands, cbet flop 60%. seems he's opening quite a lot in UTG, but he could just as easily be running good.

      my options...
      fold because: UTG range, it's generally gunna be pretty tight and we can't really continue if he cbets given his low Cb.
      call because: he has a low Cb stat and we can bet IP if he checks and consider barreling.
      3bet because: we have blockers and he has folded 100% to 3bets over this tiny sample, but also we look super strong for 3betting vs UTG. also if we 3bet we push out potential squeezers and avoid multiway pots.

      what decision would you say is best?

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: 60 hands is not really a sample that will give us a reliable number of hands for cbet flop so I wouldn't base my entire decision on that.

      What do we know about the 20bb blind player? If we 3-bet we are committed versus him. If we call we may induce a light shove from him.

      But if he is a passive fishy guy I'd just call and play IP.
