I'm making the assumption that you're firing 2-3 barrels with most of them.
Just wondering if you play these hands faster than I said I do, or give up easier.

Seems like a strange range.
Why do you choose 45 and not 72o? Once you're only 3betting nuts/junk the junk hands don't matter, ideal situations far outweigh the equity difference between junk and worse junk, imo.
Also the only reason to 3bet 45 and not a hand like QTo or A8s or TT, is if you're flatting a lot of these hands. How do you make this proffitable post-flop?
To be honest I don't entirely disagree with the one and done approach to cbetting OOP, giving up OOP is generally +EV (or less -EV) but people see the shiny dealer button and get out of line a lot (even fish) which makes them exploitable. I haven't played against any particularly competent opponents yet, but I think a 3betting range of 15% or higher is sustainable against anyone remotely positionally aware but to do that I don't think you can play fit or fold. Your range (not hand) is decent/strong, theirs is weak, exploit.
Just random ramblings if anyone wants to correct me.
