re: Poker & Worth 3betting flop for information?
I know the whole raising for information thing is controversial but I feel it has saved me money. I can't 3bet for value because it does fold out worse hands, even like tptk might fold. I am not bluffing
either when I have an overpair. It just seems like calling isn't going to get me much value either. If I call a raise my hand isn't likely to improve and if he has the set I will call to the river and my whole stack will be in anyway and I found that is where I lose most of my money doing this. At 10nl if I 3bet pretty much everything goes away except sets so I can save like half my stack.
I find when I don't know where I am in a hand I can lose big money, but if I know where I am I feel more in control so I don't mind putting some money in for information.
I know it doesn't happen lots Acky but when it does it costs a BI or 2.5 BIs if I am playing deep. I still haven't got over my set paranoia lol
