Poker Stars $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players
Hero (BB): $1.85
Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is BB with A K
UTG raises to $0.12, 1 fold, CO calls $0.12, BTN calls $0.12, 1 fold, [color=red]Hero ?
UTG 9/9 3bet 0 over 9 hands
CO 21/17/11 over 51 hands
BTN 35/7/6 over 45 hands
UTG hasn't been at the table long, but his raise to 6x utg has me worried as a lot of regs would raise this amount with big hands pre to build a pot, but with without no reads its hard to tell!! CO seem a regular his likely holdings are SC,SPP,AXs, as for the BTN he seem to be the making of a big fat juicy fish!! So i was confident they didn't have a monster with them just flatting.
What is my action here- are we always 3betting pre to stack off here or 3bet and folding to a 4bet shove ?
Is flatting an option?
