      Hey Gerv!

      Opponent is 22/19/6 after 177 hands.

      This is a pretty questionable spot. I did not played it on tilt don´t worry:)
      I think that since his 3bet is 6 he will often 3bet light so I think that I have enough fold equity here. I did not had my Equilab installed cause I´ve got clean install of Win and forgot about it.

      What do you think generally?

      When it is worthwhile to ship AQs preflop?

      Hey,

      Do you know if he 3bets polarized or depolarized? Mostly 4% means he mostly 3bets for value, this 6% does not make it more interesting.

      Looking it elsewhere, your position is awkward in terms of him 3betting. You have a much stronger range from UTG+1 than if you would be sitting @ BTN. Meaning he is more likely to 3bet a stronger range than a weaker range so there would be less bluffs.

      I generally think I would just raise/fold here because of the reasons given.

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Hi Gerv!

      What does it means polarized/depolarized?

      Thank you for your opinions so far. I will try to watch the position between hero/villain more in these spots.

      Polarized means that his range consist of Strong & Bluffs. So like JJ+,AK & 72o,82o,94o,. When you 4bet, he folds his bluffs.

      Depolarized (linear) means he is just 3betting from the top down so JJ+,AK and then down to TT,99,AQ,AJs,88.
