Its not a great setmining opportunity.
This situation dosent play like a normal raised pot where there are 3 callers.
The key info is UTG flats the 3bet in a 3bet pot and so does MP.. dont expect them to play for stacks unless they hit sets or very big draws.
The 3bet reduces implied odds
and the fact that BB may or not be squeezing means that we are uncertain if he wants to play for stacks postflop.. even if he has a hand like AA the fact that there were 3 callers may make him think twice about stacking off in a MW pot with it. In a MW pot you not folding to a flop cbet looks exactly like what it is .. A set.
So your playing a pot where implied odds are reduced due to both the raise size and the information you give up when you hit.
HU you could be playing back with weaker but who flats this 3bet with a PP or a weak ace and then tries to bluff? That fact should cool down BB's betting postflop, because even a 1/2 pot cbet here is BIG and people not folding to big bets in MW pot looks very very strong.
