      Both seem to be a bit weak, but I could even consider calling this hand pre IP. You have a hand that has good drawing potential. If you miss, you can sometimes take a stabb in position. If it was off-suit I'd 3bet this for sure with blockers.

      3betting seems good to me. vs utg/mp if we flat we will often be unsure how to proceed as our hand is dominated often. 3betting here and taking it down now/on flop when villain check/folds looks great to me. nh!

      This hand plays really well multiway, basically this squeeze is a sqz/fold to 4bet they will rarely call.

      Dominated sure, but we are IP so we can pot controll pretty good, not like we are gonna go for stacks with a flped Q.

      Hello,

      I'd rather just fold this.
      Basically our intention is good, but we don't really need to go down to QJs in this spot against a UTG raiser in my opinion.

      What hands are you going to value 3bet and what hands are you going to bluff with in this spot?

      Best,
      Plamen
