      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($5.26)
      Hero ($10)
      UTG ($26.66)
      CO ($5.42)
      BTN ($7.69)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: Q:club:

      UTG raises to $0.40, fold, BTN calls $0.40, fold, Hero calls $0.30

      FLOP ($1.25) 3:diamond: Q:diamond: J:club:

      Hero bets $0.90, UTG raises to $2.10, BTN calls $2.10, Hero folds

      UTG is playing 19/15, no reads on BTN

      Should I 3bet pre? Flop is standard right?

      I'd probably squeeze it preflop 5-handed but it's close, a 19/15's opening range even from MP isn't that wide and they'll rarely flat the squeeze with a hand we're doing great against. I don't mind just calling and seeing a flop.

      Postflop I'd check/call tho unless you don't believe he'll c-bet. I think between him and BU who could stab if UTG doesn't c-bet, it's rarely going to check around so I'd check/call expecting to catch a bluff often enough.

      As played easy fold unless you believe UTG can play KQ like that, I find it quite unlikely overall, I think you're in bad shape against UTG alone even assuming BU is just awful and coldcalling with whatever. If you read UTG as aggressive enough to raise there with like AK or draws it's probably fine to 3bet/call but I think it's pushing it too far at nl10 against a 19/15.

      Hope it helps.
