      Hmm, Q7. AJs is behind his 10% pfr range. Why do we call or 3bet here? is it because he seems bad judging by his vpip %?

      Yeah, it seems that a guy with this stats will not only have a bad selection of hands for callin/raising preflop, but also for calling a 3bet and playing on the flop. The 10% for PFR for him for example does not mean that he chooses to raise with the 10% best hands!

      Hi,
      Like these tests.
      But could I have further explanation as to why the button will never trap here, he's holding a weak drawing hand.
      THANKS

      $25 NL Hold'em (10-handed)

      Stacks & Stats
      UTG ($25)
      UTG+1 ($25)
      UTG+2 ($25)
      MP1 ($25) (28/25/4/58/21) [VPIP/PFR/AF/ft3-bet/4-bet]
      MP2 ($25)
      MP3 ($25)
      CO ($25) (40/10/1/40/1) [VPIP/PFR/AF/ft3-bet/4-bet]
      BU ($25) (19/16/3/59/15) [VPIP/PFR/AF/ft3-bet/4-bet]
      SB ($25)
      Hero ($25)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with AhJh
      6 folds, CO raises $1.00, BU calls $1.00, 1 fold, Hero…?

      Fold (0 Points)
      Call (2 Points)
      3-bet (3 Points)

      The same applies here as in the previous example. The button will never trap here, he's holding a weak drawing hand. That's why the same arguement applies here as against the CO open raise, albeit with the disadvantage that you will have to play out of position in the event of a call in the 3-handed pot. This leaves the option of the 3-bet and the squeeze appears a bit more interesting.

      Question 6:
      We are going to have a SPR of 6. 4$ pot, 24$ in frontof us.
      We would absolutely need FE postflop to make this +ev, which is nearly 0 OOP.

      We are not deep enough to play this profitable imo.

      What do you think?
