when i do not wish to wait for a hand to be done. i will raise the hand ,knowing, i will loose chips, to force the big hand to go over the top, so everyone folds. if he does not take it down .
it works but is it wrong

It sounds like you are saying you'll raise any hand from any position. If that's the case, yes, you are wrong. You are giving away chips if you 3 bet with poor hands.


3 betting is a great strategy that people don't do enough but you have to use relatively good hands and your position affects which hands you 3 bet with. And it is never done "knowing i will loose [lose] chips" because over the long run 3 betting will win you more chips than if you did nothing.

Are you talking about strategy, or ethics?

Ethically, they are your chips, and you can do whatever you want with them.

Strategically, you are throwing away chips that you might need later.

I did not even read the post, but I was always taught if you have to ask 'is it wrong', than chances are great it is wrong . . .

When all the members folded, it can also be said that it was right.
