since you spoke in very general terms, i'll say this: if they are good i.e. positionally aware, they're going to credit you with a much stronger range when you 3bet their UTG raise for that exact reason
i mean in theory, only 3betting an UTG raise with really strong hands is obviously exploitable once your opponents realize it. that being said, this is 25NL FR where i'm not expecting my opponents to be masters of observation or exploiting tendencies. getting fancy here is overdoing it
