      MP: $84.13 (336.5 bb)
      SB: $24.75 (99 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $27.83 (111.3 bb)
      BTN: $26.92 (107.7 bb)
      CO: $28.57 (114.3 bb)
      BB: $20.48 (81.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with Q Q
      Hero raises to $0.75, 2 folds, BTN raises to $2.50, 2 folds, Hero ???

      Loose regular, 29/22, 3bet 8% (3bet vs UTG 4%), fold to 4bet 61% ~60k hands. Got a note, that he 3bet me BTN vs MP with A3s, he doesn't 3bet much vs utg tho. How would you play it? Can we call OOP? I don't really like it, but if we 4bet, we just isolate ourselves against better, I think. Or just fold it oop as it will be very hard to play postflop?

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: I would say that 4-betting is our better play here. We know that he can 3-bet bluff so we will collect a bunch of pots and then when he ships he should have at least QQ+/AK against which we do fine. QQ+, AK is 2.5% range so he bluffs ~1.5% or 37.5% of his hands.

      You do have a lot of hands but I can't see any notes that tell us how he plays postflop so I wouldn't want to call OOP.

      Okay, thanks, I played 4bet/call too. Which situations would you prefer calling, or even folding in these spots? Lets say we are UTG vs MP, what would you play?

      If the guy is really nitty and has 2-3% 3-bet versus that position we can consider just folding but at 25nl+ (SH) I doubt you will encounter many of those spots.

      Calling is fine when you have spewy guys that don't stack off light preflop. In those cases you call to let him bluff off (or bluffcatch light).
