Hi, villain is 15/12/0 over 106 hands.

Should we 3B here ?
And what if he was raising on MP ?

I assume you don't have any reliable CO steal stats or 4Bet stats based on only 106 hands.

With villain only play with a half-stack, I think you have two options. You can 3Bet with the intention of getting all in, or flat calling Out of Position.

This villain seems pretty tight and is short-stacked so I get the feeling that he will have a very narrow 4Betting range composed of QQ+, maybe with or without AK. Therefore I'd lean towards flat calling like you did, which closes the action and under-represents your hand when you do flop an A or K.

My analysis wouldn't change much if the raise came from MP.
