6Max Set Mining
I've been attempting to work on my 6max game this month, and wanted to get some feedback on a light bulb moment during a session tonight.
During the session, it felt like I was dealt a lot of small-medium pairs (22-99). It also felt like I was dealt them UTG or UTG+1 primarily. When I decided to play them, I opened to 3x, and almost automatically was calling 3bets from late position raisers.
After the 4th or 5th time this happened, I began wondering how much money I was losing by calling to set-mine these hands. PT4 only had 93 hands where I was dealt 22-99 and called a 3bet, but I lost a significant amount during those hands.
An example from tonight's session...
Winning Poker Network - $0.25 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4
Hero (UTG): $11.52
BTN: $33.39 (26/19/7)
SB posts SB $0.10, BB posts BB $0.25
Pre Flop: (pot: $0.35) Hero
Hero raises to $0.75
, BTN raises to $2.25
Most of the players I encounter have similar 3bet ranges. Generally speaking, what would be the best line in this situation?
