To 3 bet or not to 3 bet

5/10 7 handed

SB - 1250 (tight image, only played & won 1 pot)
UTG - 1000 (fresh stack, aggressive, lost 2 big pots & got felted prior to this hand)
UTG+1 - 500 (new player)
HJ - 800~ (passive old reg)
CO - 1400~ (passive old reg)

UTG+1 posts 10
UTG opens to 45
UTG+1 folds
HJ calls 45
CO calls 45
BTN fold
SB calls 45 with AKJT
BB folds

1. Does SB have enough hand to 3 bet the UTG player (who could be tilting)?
2-4. What if the action was folded to SB? Do we 3 bet (get BB to fold) to get it heads up with the UTG player? Is folding an option if faced with a 4 bet?
5. Does position dictate most, if not all, what we can and cannot do?

Re: To 3 bet or not to 3 bet

Just calling cuts your variance a lot out of position. In the games I play in people that pot it just don't fold to a raise (doesn't matter what their cards are). While you are likely ahead there are a lot of flops where you are drawing thin/dead on low/medium card flops and being out of position sucks. I like to see the flop and play aggressively on those flops I flop well on. I'm fine with check/folding those flops I wiff on to further action.

So based on the information in the op.

3! Should be profitable, but not necessarily more profitable than flatting. A lot depends on how sticky all the players are.

If hero 3! And gets jammed on, he should stack off vs utg, but maybe not the other players.
