      Do we 3b for value or as a preflop semibluff here? I assume as a semibluff because I would 3b fold. Someetimes he might call with AT IP, but I guess it depends heavily on opponent type.

      Sorry if this should be in the general strategy discussion section. If so I can move it.

      Hello muel294,

      Well, for value it means that you also plan to go broke. Do you plan to 3bet/Broke here with just AJs? What worse hands do you expect him to continue with 4bet? Not that the 3bet is wrong but just asking. :)

      Best Regards.

      ahh makes sense. In addition to him calling with worse, we would also have expect him to 4b or go broke with worse preflop in order to make it a value 3b.

      Therefore it is a preflop semibluff.
