      What are your thoughts on 3 bet bluffs on SNGs?

      Imo the 3 bet bluff has to be made against a raise from MP to LP to be effective (bigger raising range) and against a tight player.

      Do you use it?

      I don't really use it but I am considering doing it ...

      Maybe It would be a fancy play if I get flat called or 4 bet shove I am screwed so I really need to make it worth it.

      Not really versus tight player. Obviously villain open raise range has to be wide enough to create good enough fe for our bluff. If you have tight image versus good player who open wide from CO or later then it can be very profitable before villain start to adjust. In sng stacks are so shallow that in many case villain can't do much versus 3bet. Obviously in bubble situations 3bet bluffs are great (especially as chip lead), if villain don't adjust enough his open raise range to take account possible bubble abuse. Plus still understand how risk averse he is to continue.
