      What do you know about your opponent? Usually calling pre is fine but you can think about 4betting preflop for value since he will call worse often enough.

      Postflop seeems OK given his sizings. It looks a lot like QQ, sometimes AA sort of hand. If he bet smaller I think you have to call since AK is also in his range.

      i'm unsure when getting 3bet when i open from utg, i just think it looks so strong or am i still in the mindset from Full Ring? No stats on the villain so i tend to just call here unless they seem real loose.
