Problem with 3bet pots oop, micros
I seem to encounter more trouble in 3b pots than I used to. Consider villain unknown, 100 BB stacks, micros.
Typical example is CO raises, folds to me in BB, I raise to 3-4x his raise with say JJ. He calls.
On a low flop I value bet 2/3 pot, he calls.
On a A high flop I represent the ace and fire a bet, he calls.
Not loving turn spot in either of the cases. Obv on the A high flop I need to give up and check, at which he will bet close to 100% of the time, and I have to fold.
On the low flop, and the turn blanks, I will normally fire again (especially with a big pair). If an overcard hits on the turn or river, I can represent that but basically turning my hand into a bluff. And firing all three streets with one pair oop is not something I love.
I have tried to adjust / balance for this by also raising a bluff range such as KQ, hoping to take it down right there or if I hit a K or Q. But I am often outflopped / outplayed in that example too.
I seem to be bleeding money in this spot a lot, more often than not I am raised at some point and forced to fold, or not firing turn/river with only a pair. Pot often ends up 100 BBs.
So happy to hear some strategy tips on how to play decent hands (TT+, AQ+) from oop. Always 3bet pre? Do we always cbet when flop texture allows it? (again, consider unknown villain). How to we play turn/river?
My -guess- is villain plays (wrongly) fit / fold pre, and when they hit they stay with it, whether it be a set, dodgy 2-pair or even a weird K9 that hits a K on turn/river. Either they call all streets, or raise me off the hand at either street post.
I don't want to fold AQ+ oop pre, nor do I want to call to play fit/fold. Same goes for JJ/QQ really. (Also makes me wonder if I am not calling enough 3bets IP, and trying to outplay villains in the same manner, so happy to hear any comments on that too).
