      30/28/54 3bet 33.3.
      My play was tight.
      If he had over 10% 3bet range, I couldn't lay down my hand.
      Considering my position, did he had over 10% 3bet range?

      Hi,

      What's 10%? 10% from the Top to bottom? 10% polarized?
      Please show me examples of a 10% range since all 10% range differ a lot and react a lot different on your 4bet ;)

      Well I do not think he 3bets that range because you are tight. Meaning that when he 3bets Kts & you call or 4bet. He is just going to fold

      He pretty much want better block 3bet hands so I think CAN be range:
      88+,AJs+,A5s-A2s,KJs+,QJs,AQo+,KJo+

      Or even more bluff orientated etc.

      The thing I am trying to teach you is that the sentence ''If he had over 10% 3bet range, I couldn't lay down my hand.'' is wrong thinking. You basically assume that when he 3bets, he is going to call when you shove. In NLHE you need to find out what % he is folding & what % he is calling & from there what your equity is.

      In general I shove this but my image is much looser in general

      Best regards,
      Gerv
