      Hey!

      What do you guys think of this? Is this a 3bet all day long?

      MP folded 2/2 times to a 3bet so far and has 100 w$sd (1 situation oops)

      He didn't 4bet ones.

      This was over 90 hands. He played 20/18.

      BB is an aggro reg.

      Thoughts? 3bet/fold?

      Hard to not 3bet AK vs an MP regular from SB imo. I don't get how you can have 100 hands with him and no such dynamics to know if 3betting AKo is fine. Less static range and poker, more dynamic... When you sit at the table, 3bet an unknown the first suited hand you can imo. :f_biggrin:

      It might be a bit overkill the very first hand but you have to create the dynamics asap. You don't win with static ranges, they don't make a mistake!

      Yes, but that's because after 100 hands I usually already have a dynamic in place to make it profitable, otherwise it's an easy call, not 3bet and play postflop. The problem here is that it's a situtaion that occurs very often and you are unsure of it. Even if you lose 0.1bb/situation, think how much you lose here in the long run!

      You have to get out of the state of playing against what your opponent plays as a default and manipulate them how YOU want them to play!
