      Hello cozacu,

      As long he is giving so good odds I don't even mind to take the passive approach. Without even knowing the opponent I doubt I would be even shipping.

      But what about 3bet preflop? What's the idea of it?

      Best Regards.

      Well i don't want to call to play the hand OOP and folding AQs there it`s way too nity.

      Do you prefer calling in such spots?Why?Even if we`re ahead of his range,we lack position and information on the villain.What if the board is 956rainbow he cbets 3/4 we ...fold,call,3bet?

      I also like to 3bet hands like this because i`m showing 3betting aggression,and eventually it will be easier to get called when i have a monster.

      Well, with 3betting you ain't even keeping weaker Ax hands in the play. :) And for example if you hit your Ace or even Q you will rarely know that you are far-far ahead. ;) We can as well just Call the hand and play postflop.
