      Preflop: My estimation of villain's 3b calling range

             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     23.17%  22.91%   0.26% { QQ-77, AJs+, KQs, AJo+, KQo }
      BB     76.83%  76.57%   0.26% { KhKc }

      Is this reasonable? What would you give him?

      Flop: My line was to b/f FTR for value/protection vs weaker pairs and draws. Don't expect villain to overplay TP. Not sure whether he would raise QQ in this spot though. I feel it would be better to b/f OOP however.

      Hello muel294,

      Why not bet it bigger on the flop. :P I'd still do it ~55% or something similar. :) Vs unknown I wouldn't really try to estimate his range cause you never know how loose he calls.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks Veriz

      Is it not a good habit to try to think about ranges? I often feel like I give my opp's too much credit for things like hand selection and types of hands they will call 3b's with etc.

      I just wanted to see whether I am estimating their range appropriately.

      As a rule of thumb Is it better just think: " I am betting for value here, if I get raised I am rarely being bluffed""

      Rather keep it simple? :f_biggrin:
