      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BB: 100 BB (VPIP: 24.32, PFR: 21.28, 3Bet Preflop: 12.05, Hands: 872)
      Hero (UTG): 104.74 BB
      MP: 105.22 BB (VPIP: 33.49, PFR: 16.40, 3Bet Preflop: 4.76, Hands: 455)
      CO: 97 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 18.29, 3Bet Preflop: 8.93, Hands: 170)
      BTN: 100 BB (VPIP: 23.73, PFR: 20.10, 3Bet Preflop: 10.41, Hands: 1,230)
      SB: 100 BB (VPIP: 25.35, PFR: 21.73, 3Bet Preflop: 8.13, Hands: 879)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: K:diamond:

      Hero raises to 3 BB, MP raises to 10.5 BB, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold

      MP wins 7.5 BB

      I saw him 3betting 99, 77, and 4b+ AA. His 3bet stat is very strange to me. From bu and CO 0%, 6% sb 4% bb, and 14% from MP.

      So from MP he should be the tightest, so I was confused. Maybe it was coincidence that he had hands mostly on MP, so I found a fold, and I am not happy to stack AK here. What about QQ?

      Hi.

      Your sample is kind of small here. This is kind of close, I would either call the 3bet or fold immediately.

      I'm going to ignore your reads here for now, those were probably in late positions? Or did you see him 3bet 99/77 in MP?

      Anyway if he has a 3bet % of 5%, then he probably has a MP 3bet % of 2%. That range has AK crushed here so folding makes more sense. We are not even thrilled if we hit an A or K (may run into AA or KK). Besides, the 3bet size is kind of large.

      Thanks.

      My pt4 shows me that he 3bets once 77 and once 99, but not from which position, it could be from blinds.
