      Dealt to Hero J:heart: Q:heart:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.35, Hero calls $0.35, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.85) A:spade: 4:club: 8:spade:

      UTG+1 bets $0.60, Hero folds

      UTG+1 wins $0.81

      Villain is a 33/30 reg, folded to (0/1) 3 bets

      I'm struggling to see the line where we want to start 3 betting for value with hands where we can't stack off 100bb deep.

      If this villain had for example folded 0/7 vs 3 bets and never 4 bet, what kind of a range should we be 3 betting for value that we will fold to a 4 bet?

      Hi ChangNoi77,

      Preflop: we can't 3-bet for value hands like JQs unless villain calls all kinds of garbage preflop. Hands you can 3-bet for value are hands that are usually ahead of his calling range (AQ, AJ, JJ, etc).

      I'd start with big broadways, possibly ATs, AJo, KQ, JJ+.

      Postflop: As played the fold is fine.
