      I dont wanna call, and check/fold unimproved. I have a blocker, 3betting seems nice.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: I don't mind your 3-bet on the BTN with a blocker and this hand. It's not great when we get called but as you said we have FE for being IP.

      And even if he calls people play fit/fold often here. Later on, when you play against better opponents or players that call a lot and don't go away easy you want hands less dominated and that can continue on more boards.

      Hello,

      Calling is definitely not an option here.
      It depends whether to 3bet or not and you have to make a 3betting range for these spots - value and bluff.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Well, it depends on history and image and so on. Good opponents will still call you OOP under the right conditions. But you don't have to worry about "good" opponents until later on.

      What I said was better opponents which is totally different than good. Better means that someone that can maybe hand read more than just basic stuff. Better can mean someone with not as many leaks like calling and folding every time they miss, etc.
