If I flat call or 3 bet against these guys, they will call. And most of the time, the flop will miss me, making it hard to play when the villain is gonna be betting behind me. I rather get my money in there ahead a vast majority of the time and see all 5 cards, then to be calling or raising into a pot when I have air on the flop and could very well be behind.
I am not suggesting people should do it every hand or against everyone.
