      3% or 6% Not sure which.

      Workings
      3 scenariors= sbraise+bbraise+noraise/number of possible outcomes

      4+5+0 /3

      not sure if you have to multiply it by the number of villians, that would make 6%

      4.5%?

      Presumably BB isn't 3b 5% once SB already 3bs. Ofc, your chance of being either 3b or cold 4b is higher than above.

      imo it's 5%, just because we should only count when bb 3bets, as when sb 3bets, we can'y get 3bet for a second time :D

      now there might be a difference if sb CC and BB squeezes more than 5%

      96% chance SB will NOT 3bet you
      95% chance BB will NOT 3bet you

      Probability (neither will 3bet) = (0.96 * 0.95) = 0.912

      Probability of getting 3bet is about 8.8%.

      Have to say it's worrying the lack of basic maths understanding in this thread amongst poker players

      cause 5th grade math is too hard for high rollers


      0.05x0.96+0.04x0.95=0.086 (only around)

      2 scenarios, 1Player 3bets and other folds or 2player 3bets and other folds.

      ofcourse someone might 4bet tighter

      8.6%

      All this shows is how little maths has to do with playing winning poker :)

      If their 3bet range is so low here I'm raising every time. only getting 3bet >10% of the time so long term +ev.

      Is this correct thinking?

      Not necessarily. Doesn't mean they are folding to steal. They might call a ton and play super aggro postflop.

      So we need to know their Call a raise % too or we don't have all the info.

      really all we need is the fold to steal stat

      and if they call a lot, you can still steal if they fold to cbet a lot

      The way I worked it.

      SB will always 3bet with a 4% frequency.

      However BB can only 3bet when SB hasnt. So because SB doesnt 3bet 96% of the time. The BB 5% 3bet is actually 4.8% (0.05 x 0.96)

      So we add 4% (times SB 3bets) to 4.8% (times BB can 3bet if he gets the chance) to get 8.8% total chance of being 3bet

      It gets more complicated when we start considering cold 4bets and how SB flatting will increase BB's 3bet etc etc

      You can get all accurate, or you can just go 'Oooo 5% + 4% = 9%' and you're about right. Guess how I do it.
