      Hero bets $1.20, BTN folds


      He 3bets 5.9% his btn on 17 occasions. I know not a huge sample but he looks fairly consistent from all positions.

      What 3bet range should I give him there? Small pocket pairs and sconnectors?

      How many combos of each in order to construct a 4bet range?

      Thank you.

      I think we should fold that preflop. Well his sizing is a bit small and maybe we can use some 4 bet bluffs as well with some reads. His current 3 bet is a bit low so his range should be pretty standard.

      I still think fold is the best option.

      Hi Elchipriota,

      Perflop: This is definitely a fold preflop or at most a 4-bet bluff. However when we 4-bet bluff we should look at doing it with hands that have blockers (thus we reduce the chance that he has a premium hand).

      We can't really give him a 3-bet range here because everyone is different. Some 3-bet bluff suited aces while others 3-bet bluff random Kxo hands or suited connectors. So without seeing showdowns it would be a mistake to assign him a specific bluff range. What we can do is assign part of his value range which would be at least QQ+, AK.

      Yes I dont dissagree still good info for the 30% equity I needed imo.

      He is a reg so maybe I can find a spot to exploit him some % of the time ?


      Judges?

      Also 30% is not that good considering you will have to fold to many cbets also when you are possibly better.


             Equity     Win     Tie
      CO     32.81%  32.48%   0.32% { 87s }
      BU     67.19%  66.87%   0.32% { 66+, AJs+, KQs, AQo+, KQo }

      Thank to both of you Alan883 and Bogdan.

      In this case though he obviously doesnt have a very big % of his value range since he is betting most of his Ax on the flop and will never fold KQ.


      So my question is: Given that I can eliminate such a big part of his range by the way he played can I assume that he has a bluff range in his game on that spot?


      Thank you in advance!

      HE should be able to have some bluffs in his range of course.

      The question is, does he have enough for us to do anything about it?

      For example, let's say we play a hand and we have KJ on a board like this:

      K53r, 4, 8 and then we bet river for value and get raised by a tight guy. That should be an immediate fold, that's simple. However let's say that we know that he sometimes turns some hands into a bluff. And we get 33% pot odds.

      Well, even if he were to bluff lets say 3 out of 10 times we still can't bluffcatch because we will be -EV
