To be fair, I do think a lot of this difference between his opinion and mine is how other players perceive us. I used to have a 10% 3-bet rate, and run around 30/28. An over pair was the nuts, and I was constantly played back at. If Minh plays at 16/14, people aren't going to mess with him, and they'll be constantly trying to set-mine or make big hands against him.
So can you come up with a reasonable range where a 140bb deep-stacked TAG x/c x/r turn with in a 3-bet pot UTG vs MP of which we are ahead of? And what do you think UTG perceives our range to be when we double barrel here 140bb deep MP vs UTG? The bottom of our range really is flush draws/QQ. Even then, we should be checking back flush draws/QQ when he calls that flop. JJ just checks back in position. And if you give his range 100% combos of JJ/QQ/KK/AA that plays this exact way with these dynamics or something like that which some of us are saying itt, then there's not really much to discuss.
100NL, people can't track my stats or know my tendencies well given the anonymous tables. I really only switched back to 16/14 to reduce variance recently after experiencing my first very long downswing. I used to be 22/18 and play pretty aggro. I did probably profit a little more playing LAG, but since it's much higher variance and people can't track my stats anyway. I don't really care about reverting back to 16/14 for the time being on Bovada, especially since it has worked really well for me and has been pretty low variance. Everyone is super loose preflop on Bovada btw and you do not have very much FE equity preflop. Yeah, playing with 10 or J high OOP on Bovada UTG is a good way to burn money.
Yeah, people are playing back at you because you're 30/28. Doesn't take a really good player to figure out that you should be snapping AA here if your perceived image is wild/super loose aggro. With no given informaion on history, this is a fold.
And where have I ever advocated set-mining with unfavorable implied odds? And even if I did, which I don't think I did, it's not at the frequency you're suggesting it is at.
Some players' favorite thing to do is advocate hero calling spots where we're way behind vs an unknown's range. Or use BvB or Blind v BTN as an excuse in justifying a terrible stack-off at micro stakes where most players don't fully understand these dynamics to be playing back often enough, are level 1 thinkers, and are generally passive. That's my favorite thing to read.
