re: Poker & $2 NLHE Full Ring: relatively tight player who didn't got too out of line
I like the 3bet pre. It's closer that you may think as it's Full Ring and we're 3betting vs UTG but I still like it.
When the BTN cold calls, I think he's going to have QQ, big Ax hands, maybe even KK/AA if he's tricky, maybe some TT/77 and even 22 if he's a weaker reg.
The main point being here, if our read is good, he rarely has anything we're happy to get it in against here. If we're lucky, he has AK/AQ with Ah and even then, we're only a slight favourite but most often, he's going to have us drawing thin (again assuming your read is good).
It's easy to overestimate our equity is spots like these and get carried away, which is what may have happened here.
