      Preflop: I don't think you should be 3betting here if he is raising a tight range from UTG

      Flop: I Would just fold here. Calling only makes sense if you think that villain donks the Flop with a wide range, and has a wide range in the first place.

      I guess calling would make sense if you did 3b Preflop (you need to get him to call with many worse unpaired hands in order to justify the play in the first place) and expect him to have a wide leading range.

      I think it's close, maybe calling is slightly better. But the reason why I feel that you should fold here is because I think villain's range is tight in the first place which is why I wouldn't even 3bet. Hope you get my point.
