      Hey Tomaloc,

      When villain has a super tight range, such as 3% 3better BB vs UTG, the call 20 rule starts to look a lot more like call 13. I still think size is a little large to setmine here, maybe vs 10bb I would include some setmines. (I think you can increase your number of profitable setmines by opening to 3x from UTG)

      However, if MP is a fish he will also likely overcall with a lot of his range improving your direct pot odds. You could consider a setmine here, I wouldn't setmine everything though, just the better PP's, maybe 77+.
