2. Its making sense now, 3b 6789 is spew bc we want a multi-way pot with a hand that flops so well, isolating with a 3b puts us facing lots of 4 big card hands, or bigger rundowns then ours
3. so your saying you would of flat called pre....are we c/r a cbet or just flatting again to see the turn?
You can 3b rundown hands, but I wouldn't go as low as mid-rundown type ones. I would probably say AKQ10, AKJ10, KQJ10, something that has 3 face cards but with the mid run down type hands you just get into trouble a lot of the time. You are correct that you'd rather play these multi-way as they tend to play much better. As far as 3 betting AAxx hands, this is good as long as it's a decent type AAxx hand. AAQJ ss I would 3b, but I probably would just flat AA93 no suit/ss out of the SB because it's not that strong of a hand and if you do get more than one caller you're probably in trouble on the flop and have spewed money. The entire reason behind 3 betting AA type hands are to try and get 33% or more of the stack in pre so we have an ultra low SPR. Of course you can 3b any ok AA or KK hand if you're going to be HU with a shorter stack even if it's oop as they should play fine no matter what HU.
If we just flatted here and check the flop and someone leads I'm honestly probably just giving the hand up here as we don't flop anything but a mid FD that can be beat and backdoor str draws that are iffy at best because of the A10 on the flop (KQJ9 type hands have us utterly dominated). You can peel once to see if you catch FD on the turn if you want, but if you don't catch it then you have to release as you've lost odds
of making it +EV to chase river probably not to mention it only being a 9 hi flush that's oop you're either not going to make anything or pay off a higher one alot of the time.
I guess basically what I'm saying is once we flat with this hand and see this flop, we should pretty much give up and be done with the hand as there is no +EV reason to continue at that point in a multi-way pot.
