re: Poker & calling 3bet ranges?
its all really situational dependent which makes it quite hard for me to generalize.
I am more inclined to call a 3 bet in position and 4 bet it OOP.
The more aggro my opponent is post flop the more likely I am to call the 3 bet rather than 4 bet. And the more polarized my calling range is.
Against passive opponents i am more inclined to call a 3 bet OOP and IP rather than 4 bet as I will be able to get to showdown easier/play cheaply postflop.
I think my estimation of 5-8% may have been a bit low thinking about it now, but up to about 12% is probably the percentage of my stack i am happy calling a 3 bet with when I have the bottom end of my polarized range.
In my experience at small/micro tournaments (almost exclusively $4/180's) it can be extremely profitable to 3 bet light, 4 bet very tightly, and fold to 3bets a lot unless you have really decent implied odds
