      My standard line here is to 3b/broke for value because I think I need to be polarizing here: for value with QQ+/AK and as a semi bluff with SC's 54s-JTs

      However, I think villain will be raise/folding to 3b's here super often. So, should I flat IP some of the time (or maybe even most of the time) if stats indicate that he will only continue with QQ+ by 4b'ing. If he never flats worse then I am never really able to extract value.

      My hand is strong, I am IP and I think villain is folding too often, surely this would be a great opportunity to play QQ deceptively for cheap?

      Hello muel294,

      Against SB it's standard, though you really have to reevaluate the villain as long he is nitty with 15/11. ;) So not sure if he ever even goes broke with worse.

      Best Regards.
