I am a break even player at 2nl so don't listen too closely to me, but I 3bet vs steal roughly 11 percent of the time with all my premium hands and with some slightly less strong hands that I don't want to play out of position post flop and I feel that this keeps BB stealers at bay reasonably well.

Against good players, you want to have a polarized range and 3-bet strong hands you're usually willing to stack off with -- possibly around 99/AQ depending on a lot of factors -- as well as hands near the bottom of your defending range such as 83s.

Versus a calling station, it's fine to only 3-bet premium hands and flat the rest of your defending range.
