      UTG3 was 15/10/0 over 40 hands.

      PREFLOP
      3bet bluff. I assume this guy to 4bet KK+ and flat QQ-JJ/AQ+.
      Imo he folds at least 50% of his range and I have decent equity vs the rest so 3bet should be profitable.

      FLOP
      Small bet can either be weakness or meant to induce.
      Not sure why I raised, I think flatting would be fine as by raising I get value only from AhKh, but I'm beat a lot more often.

      TURN
      Opted to just fold.

      All in all, I think I should just flat on the flop, call <1/2 pot bet on the turn (or fold turn) and fold river.

      Hi Dawidas,

      Preflop: His range is generally so tight there that our 3-bet bluff isn't that great at all. What do you expect his range to be in that spot? Our equity is not that decent versus what continues given what ranges you think he would.

      In my book this is either a call or fold preflop. I think folding would not be a mistake given positions/player.

      As played your line is fine.
