[NL2-NL10] Nl5 Ak

      UTG is a multitabler (4+) with no applicable reads. The reason why I don't 3bet is because I always give UTG too much credit and I only 3bet AA/KK for value and AT, maybe AJ as bluffs. This may be a leak of mine..

      He openraised 5 times from UTG out of 39 (13%). When I open up the hand selector, it says: 44+/A9o+/A6s+/KJs+ (According to some sklansky-karlson, that is)
      The other model is "hand vs 3 randoms" (FYI, pokertracker equity calc):

      Which of these is a good range approximation? I seem to play way tighter, like 77+/AQ+ but still I fold to 3bets a lot.

      Anyway, can I then raise AK too for value preflop?

      About this hand: On the flop I wanted to x/r (is it better to just lead out here?) and on the turn the board pairs, but I still think a bet of better.

      I think that we can't really determine his UTG range from just 39 hands, but a solid 13% range should look like this - 22+, AT+, KJs+, KQo, QJs.

      Anyways, we could look on his fold to 3bet and if it is rather low I would prefer to 3bet here.

      I like the way you played postflop here.
