Look according to the situation at the table.
If I have a table where they are respecting me, it is a hand that even in UTG or UTG1 I open with a miniraise.
If I am in a position behind, and another player opens up to a 3 bet I always pay.
Because that's a hand that has paid off a lot in my poker life.
Look, I remember the 2nd MTT of cardschat that I entered the final table, I just entered the final table with a hand of 89s hearts.
One of our friends opened from UTG 3 BB with QQ and I was in SB with a short stack, if I remember correctly it was 9 BB of which I had to use 2.5 to call the villain's 3 bet.
The decision was .... I go all in ??? Or I play to see the flop???...So since it wasn't a monster hand I decided to see the flop. The player who was in BB was lucky that he also paid and entered the play.
And with this I'll tell you everything, the flop was 899. The UTG went allin, I called and the BB folded.
With that play, I entered the final table of the Cardschat MTT on Sundays, the one of u$s 300
