When things are this deep, almost every hand becomes read dependant. Against opponents who are afraid to 4-bet preflop, I'll 3-bet just about any hand I'm willing to play. Against opponents who play poorly postflop, I'm calling with just about any 2 cards 500 big blinds deep.
But just to get us in the ballpark:
Suited Connectors: 45s+
Suited 1 Gappers: 35s+
Some other small connectors like: 36s+, 78os+
All pocket pairs
Obviously, I'm 3-betting AK, QQ+. AQ & JJ aren't lookin' so hot from an UTG raiser, but I'd still probably play them.
I'm never calling/raising with KJ, KQ, QJ, AJ.
Basically, when stacks become this deep, I'm not in the business of making mediocre hands. I'm looking to play a hand with a lot of implied odds
, and make my opponent make a huge mistake on the turn/river. I'm also looking to do a lot of floating, especially if I have a turn card which could bring me a lot of outs, or a disguised hand. Plus, I'm much more willing to bluff at a pot, since villain can get away from his hand easier.
