      BTN: 26/21/1.5, 3bet 9.4, 98 hands


      4bet preflop I think would be bad when there is cold caller - with a strong range. But maybe its not even worth to call the 3bet? Because postflop it will be ugly. If I hit A or K, then vs caldcaller I will not get calls from worse hands and only can be vs the same AK or KK, AA and pay for sets. If he has QQ, he will not pay on Kxx flop 3way. Vs BTN I am OOP so it will also be hard to extract. So just fold to 3bet there?

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      If BB is also a reasonable opponent then he will more often have a stronger range which is towards PPs range preflop. Therefore not really worth risking with the call whilst vs PFA we going to play the hand also being OOP.

      Best Regards.
