      Other than pretty much AA** (although currently I don't 3 bet the worst AA from the blinds - ie with a 9 and no low draw - leak?), what other hands should we consider 3 betting with.

      I know Ribbo has advocated 3 betting 2345 and AKT2s as being able to be 3bet from the blinds in various evaluations. 2345 for deception and AKT2s for value.

      So... what ranges should we consider 3 betting - both in and out of position - and in what situations?

      May be completely wrong, but here is my general thinking:

      I don’t do a huge amount of 3betting against tight opponents.

      IP against loose villains I tend to 3bet 4-way hands that play better in HU low SPR pots. So I would 3bet ABBW, but call A234 because it’s really good multiway. I think what you don’t want to do is 3bet stuff like (A2)junk when 100bb deep, since it hits so few flops, which is obv really bad for 3bet pots.

      From the blinds I think any 4-way premium is fine against a single raise.

      Calling 4bets: I’ve pretty much just been calling with anything I 3bet that isn’t AAxx. I haven’t done calculations yet to see if this is ok

      Out of position as well? And then playing fit/fold on the flop, and 3/4 a ton on the boards we continue on?
