      Known players:
      UTG1 = (€4.94)
      UTG2 = (€4.08)
      MP1 = (€4.35)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, K.
      2 folds, UTG2 raises to €0.14, MP1 calls €0.14, MP2 calls €0.14, 4 folds, Hero calls €0.10. (???)

      Flop: (€0.58) T, 3, J (4 players)
      Hero checks, UTG2 bets €0.52, MP1 folds, MP2 folds, Hero folds, UTG2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.58.

      You could 3bet preflop but you are very unlikely to make 2 opps fold (to be HU) and your would be OOP so I think you call is fine. Postflop easy c/f.

      I don't mind 3betting pre as that is going to be strong move and they should respect that unless they are just fishes who are clicking call button whenever they have a chance. Plus by 3betting you are taking initiative and you will be able to cbet a lot of flops and take it down HU/2-way pot. But you may vote against 3bet because initial raiser was from UTG2, so if he's not too loose you should give respect to his range. That said I don't mind calling and trying to hit anything if you think you won't be able to fold any of them.
      So basically you choice depends on that how loose they all are - if they are folding like never/UTG range is rather tight calling is fine, but if UTG raiser is rather loose and they are capable making fold - 3betting seems better choice.

      As played - c/f flop.

      Good luck!

      I see many players raising from utg just to represent a strong hand.

      So you need to know the type of player..
