Hi, i read an artickle where it was said to 3 bet bluff with these hands in position in 6 max. My question is why should i fold ATo and KJo and 3 bet bluff with hands shown below? are ATo and KJo really weaker hands than any hand from the 3 bet bluff list below?

I don't know for sure but my suspicion is that it a set of hands that make up a desired percentage (~4%)so you are not bluffing too often and are disguised when you flop well. On all of them you have to hit the flop twice if called so the bluff equity is way the most important. This also makes them easy to fold when you miss of called or fold when you are 4-bet.

Good decisions!
