3bet is better. Period. But folding is much much much better even
You see Rodney, i see what you mean about representing strength. and yes, folding might be better in a perfect world of NITS. But i am not a nit. I like to play speculative hands and 34 suited type of hands and have won quite a few pots with them. I have done so by flatting and then moving in when i hit 2 pairs , a wrap or a FD. sometimes even trips.
I dont get why we should be flatting pocket pairs in situations like this when pocket pairs dont play half as well as suited connectors.(or suited one gappers.)
And lets say i do 3bet pre and he flats and the boards misses me completely. Then what. Ok , i will of course continue any aces on the flop since i 3bet pre, but if those aces are in his range then im just burning money.
In the micros where i am currently playing and from my experience, i am pretty sure flatting hands like this(assuming you want to play them) is more ABC than 3 betting them. Pot control is good before a flop comes out.
what do you think?
just asking. and thank you really for your input.
