      In my limit there are some opponents who 3B alot and steal but don't fold to 3B themself.
      I always thought "i can't 4B his 3B since my hand is not that strong".
      But know i have more date on most of these players and i found out the play really bad PostFlop.
      So should i just call there 3B (with wide range) with hands that don't get dominated?

      Here are 2 Hands where i tried this plan and i think it will show profit:

      Hand1:

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $66,35
      Hero:
      $24,6

      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BU with 6:spade: , 5:spade:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, SB raises to $2,15, BB folds, Hero calls $1,40.

      Villain 3B with 21% from SB (39). CB 57
      My hand needs implied odds and against his weak range i don't have much but i have position and villain cbets 57% on flop so i called.

      Flop: ($4,55) 7:spade: , 5:club: , 3:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $2,5, SB folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4,55

      Hand 2


      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $24,68
      MP3:
      $9

      This Midstack Player has a 30% openraise from BU and F3B 59%.
      FlopCB = 42%


      Preflop: Hero is BB with K:club: , Q:diamond:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,75, 3 folds, Hero calls $0,50.


      I can value3B but he will fold most hands and i isolate myself against his shoverange.
      KQo is maybe a bad example since i could definitly 3B. But what should i do with SC and maybe even one-gappers since i don't want to get allin with them?
      Should i 3B more since he can fold alot or should i just call with alot of hands since he plays fit/fold after the flop.


      Flop: ($1,65) K:heart: , 9:club: , 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, MP3 checks.

      Turn: ($1,65) 8:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, MP3 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1,65

      Hi,

      If they are playing fit or fold postflop I think you can easily call suited connectors against wide 3-bet range. Not sure about 4-betting since you get a lot more information postflop so I´d usually go there only for value.

      About defending your BB- you may balance out your 3-bet range about hands that you´re willing to go with and hands that you think are good semibluffing hands. I´d mostly 3-bet oop for value, since players would not like to fold against aggressive 3-bettor and I really like to have better hands to go against them postflop (if they have position)
