      PRE
      3bet for value? Even if he`s calling my 3bet this wide:
      TT-22,AQo-A9o,KQo-KTo,AQs-A7s,KQs-KTs,QJs-QTs

      I`m only 3% favorite against his calling range.

      If I`m opting to 3b, my plan is to c-bet dry boards 1/2 pot.

      What about just calling pre? His stats suggest, that he`s passive and if he opens pre and c-bets, he`s probably got a hand.

      Definitely 3bet in SB to isolate the fish.

      I don't think the equity is that important. You have initiative and you probably will have a skill edge = you are making more money with a 3bet if he is weak postflop

      Hello dienaszaglis,

      23% steal on the BTN isn't really wide or anything, so the 3bet becomes really close + also needs decent postflop understanding where to CB, where not to CB etc.

      He is also opening 4bb which is rather a strength sign, I'd be rather just Calling and playing the hand postflop and reevaluating the actions there. Than kick out his weaker Ax hands or even Tx hands and rather have really close equity vs the calling range and might even have trouble postflop.

      Best Regards.
