re: Poker & Putting together a COMPLETE 3-betting strategy
Thanks guys for your input, it seems like just when I have got this 3-bet thing sussed outin my head there is even MORE to think about!
Lol, think I am slowly getting there though! For now I am just sticking to value and a little light in those obvius spots untill I get my head fully around it. But...

I like this post tho. Really you should think of things as a range continuum, instead of 5 distinct ranges.
As I said before, those 3-bet ranges are by no means set in stone. I would use them as a rough guide to keep me on the right track until I have memorized them, just like I did 10 months ago when I draw out my first starting hand chart. I still take a quick peak at it now but only once every thousand hands or so! Of course there will be times when I would 3-bet with 99+ and high broadways. Against a villain with F3-bet of <70 would be a prime example ...and I would be a fool to to try and 3-bet semi-bluff with 86s!
Coming on to Stu's point about taking in to account ATS numbers. I have these in my HUD at present but I will say that the vast majority of players are positionally aware enough for their ATS% to be double -2.5X their PFR. I know these numbers should impact my decision but for the moment I want this process to remain reasonably
I have dropped from 6-4 tables and am finding slower thinking poker more profitable though I realise my variance will seem higher. For the moment the time I am spending thinking about 3-bets prevents my attention wondering over to ATK exotics and teen shaved!
I will rethink my desision to only display >100 hands of stats. I put this in place to stop myself giving weight to meaningless statistics but I can see that VPIP andPFR can become of some use quite quickly.
What do you guys think of my 3-betting ranges? the 2.6 and 12.5 would be use mainly in extreme circumstances. All would obviously be tweeked on the fly.
