      what are the arguments for calling and the arguments for 3betting besides 3betting will give me innitiative on the flop?

      It is not a good move to raise preflop since you are against UTG raiser. It is not profitable move. I would fold it.

      I do not like calling preflop. If you hit your ace, your opponents will often fold if they do not have ace and if they do then you are often dominated with your bad kicker. You would need at least one coldcaller to call profitable. If you call, you must have very good postflop skills because you will have to win if you do not hit a thing.

      On the flop, you should have bet $0,95.
