If i'm 3betting for value then villain calls 3bets wide and can be cbetted strongly on most boards. If i'm 3betting as a bluff then ideally I don't even want to see a flop, meaning villain has shown he folds to 3bets, so if I see a flop i'm not bothered about c/f'ing b/c a villain who I prev thought folds to 3bets has called so their range is strong.
Imo, you cant then say, what happens if i 3bet TT and the board comes down Kxx, as that entirely depends on how I got to that point in the first place, if he calls 3bets wide then i'm cbetting, and depending on the xx cards b/f the turn, if he folds to 3bets then I might not, as range prob has a lot of Kx broadways and plenty of AK's too.
Someone smarter than me will probs jump in with comments about polarizing/depolariazing ranges based on player types but I do not understand that enough yet, something that I am learning though.
Generally though, and it may not be best practice, I'm usually 3betting because they fold a lot or because they call a lot and in each case it is easy to proceed, I would say that double/triple barreling in 3bet pots is erring slightly on the FPS side of things and probs doesnt need to be worried about.
Since I play 10nl FR I almost always 3bet for value. For a player with a
PFR of 10 pocket 9's are right about the middle of their range, so if they fold I win and if they call I probably have decent equity, especially if they are flatting AK/AQ/AJ/KQ.
If I 3bet JJ/TT/99 and villain calls and flop comes down Kxx or Axx I'm guessing that the looser the villain the more likely they were to hit that flop and fold to a donk bet. Reason being a Nit isn't likely to flat AA/KK/AK to a 3bet, especially if OOP so a nit may be easy to bluff on that flop if they flatted QQ/JJ/TT.
I don't think there are too many 3bet bluffs at 2/5/10 nl. I actually tried this yesterday with Kd2d. Flop came down KhQhTh. Villain checked, I bet, he called. Turn was a brick and he potted it so I folded. I actually felt pretty lost when I tried this.
