By calling you invite MP in as well which sucks, plus it means BTN won't be bluffing as much 3-handed.
As played he can't possibly put you on QQ, but even so what hands can he really call you with at this point?
yeah and if he puts me on a resteal, he will call preflop (he can obv take it away from me postflop if i'm restealing), and i'll be playing a big pot against a sick player OOP with a hand that has trouble on lots of flops. which sucks. i'm effectively playing QQ for set/overpair equity because i don't want to play big pots OOP.
he can call me with obv any set, AA/KK, maybe AQ (depends what he thinks i'm doing on river), and probably a lot of trips.
basically if he puts me on strictly sets here, he would be a huge nit to fold to a line that a set rarely takes, and is a bluff more often than a more standard aggro line that a set would often take.
let's pretend to be villain: we have something like AA (seams reasonable iyam), we raise preflop blah blah, 3 handed to flop, we c-bet a good flop for us (Q-high + low cards), we check turn for pot control, and bet river for value, and then villain just fking shoves. seriously wtf is he doing shoving there when he knows i'm so tricky and aggro and he thinks i'm bluffing but i have a hand?
can villain really fold a hand he bets 25 BBs on river with?
