$50 NLHE Full Ring: Preflop ideas...
Right a few thoughts on this hand i played earlier, and after noticing a lot of regs are quite happy to bet the flop and turn at a high frequency.
Villain is a winning reg, plays a lot of hands 13/11 TAG opens 12% from MP.
Villain c-bets like 65-70%, cbets turn 80% and over like 5 samples has bet the river a 3 or 4 times also... So im pretty sure we can say he's an aggressive player for the most part, going to be barrelling lots.
So i have lots of options here... and the reason im posting this is because one thing which im sure is true is that, "If a hand is good enough to call with, then 3betting must be for value." This makes sense right, if its +EV to call then you wouldn't 3bet it as a bluff... well i 3bet KJo here for a bluff, not sure whether or not i could make more calling here.
My exact thoughts were that if i call, i will be folding lots of flops that miss and calling 3 streets most likely if i hit a piece of the board, i think floating is out of the equation as he's not the type of player who's gonna let us float him.
So is KJo good enough here to call with and close our eyes and call down when we hit a piece? I dont think KJo does very well against a 12% range and i had no suitedness so this added to my decision to not call.
Would we play this hand differently if it was suited? I sure would be more inclined to call if it were suited as villain is likely to give up to turn raises, so we could raise with some equity perhaps?
Folding could be fine, i dont think i would of minded that.
3betting, he folds about 2/3 of the time to 3bets, i had position.. didnt think anyone behind would try anything tricky or come along without a better hand.
So yeah, is this the type of hand i should be calling with instead of 3betting against players who are going to be barrelling a shit ton post flop? What hands would be better to do this with if KJo isn't good enough?
