On to 3betting then. When were BTN and CO opens, ive noticed flatting seems pretty bad when regs are in the blinds. Flatting shows were not that strong, and players will regularly 4xBB from SB or BB and squeeze. So I guess were 3betting CO with a similar re-stealing range? Im also not sure whether its worth staying at tables with aggro regs to my left, getting involved in leveling wars with them, probably best to just find a softer table..?
Bascially just post any advice on being a nuisance to people from the blinds and BTN.
1. Are you using a HUD? If so what is their steal % and what is the BB's fold to 3bet%? This is how you determine how wide you should be restealing or raising for value. I don't like flatting from the blinds very often especially from a button raise that will more than likely be a heads up pot. If MP raised, CO called and you are sitting in the SB with 88, I would flat but if the CO opened and it folded to you, a 3bet would be nice. I also don't like calling with SC too often, sometimes they are alright to play from the blinds but if you miss your hand you are screwed and OOP which is going to happen majority of the time, it is 3 bet or fold unless you have 98s in the BB and CO raises and Button and SB both call then a flat is alright because of odds
alone. Raise sizes are nice.
2. I don't have to much of an opinion on this as this scenario does not come up often(blinds squeezing two players) but if you have aggro regs to your left it is probably best to find another table. Especially if there are nits to your right.
