You are in BB medium stack. Dealer tends to 3bet often Dealer range is too wide to open up and there is blind stealing. Let’s say you have suited A-10 in the BB and there is 3x raiser from the dealer and everyone else has folds and comes to you?
Do you ever partial shove? Rather than full shove ? If so when to do it?
Will flat be reasonable if stack sizes are about the same?
I would usually 3bet here. If we’re 25bb or less effective stack, shoving is a good option. If we’re over 25bb, then I like the smaller 3bet (with the plan of calling if the button shoves). But definitely you can mix in some flat calls too with this very playable hand! Particularly if stacks are deeper.
