When people say you should always only be 3betting for value or bluff, then what do you do in this example:
You have a10 in the sb and the btn who is unknown opens 3bb.
You can either fold, but a10 is a strong hand 3 handed and the btn steal is probably weak, and now im stuck between calling and 3betting. I get so many mixed messages from tips from watching videos etc. and what i think is:
You should call because a10 is a lot better than btn's range and 3betting will just fold out his worse hands and you will get called/4bet against his better hands. But then again if you call in the sb then you are out of position in the hand and you could get squeezed by the bb and if you miss the flop then you are going to have to just fold.
So call or 3bet??
Same thing for e.g. you open 3x utg with ajs and get 3bet from the btn (who is known to 3bet bluff often in position). AJs is probably quite better than btns range so calling keeps in his bluffing
range but you are out of position so you should 4bet but that will get 5bet by stronger and fold out worse.
Basically: Is it worth playing out of position (choosing to call rather than 3bet/4bet) to keep in an opponents bluffing range??4
