If I'm on EP (UTG or UTG+1) and I got suited A or pocket small pair, my regular play is to bet 3BB since I'm the first to act. But then, if a player who I consider is tight 3x bets. Is it profitable to call? What I've been doing is call, but I don't know if it's correct.

Thank you.

It depends on several things.

How strong is your hand

How good do you think they are

To reraise is a strong move and should be an indication of a good hand. This means you need to be sure they will pay you off if you hit.

Hi mths costa!

It depends.. on the stack sizes, table dynamics, how the opp's playing, what type of table you're at (cash, league tourney, satellite, cash tourney), if a tourney, where you're at in a tourney. Without all of this information, it may be correct to call, raise or fold.
