      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: looks fine as a 3-bet bluff.

      Postflop: We should cbet this board with 1p and backdoor draws. We can make AQ and AK type hands to fold and small pairs that called to set mine.

      Remember 1/2 pot means that we need to take down the pot 33% of the time.

      I was wondering, isnt this just bad overall?
      I'm creating an SPR of around 4,5 with a hand that prefers more. I mean, wouldnt it be better to call, and maybe even ch.r down the guy with a draw etc.?

      Well, you can't really call profitably OOP there versus not so wide range. I think you show a higher EV by 3-betting. A lot of the time we take it down preflop or with a cbet on the flop.

      I read some other articles on 2+2, and I got a bid disswayed from 3betting SCs OOP vs regs. I mean, if I'd to semibluff, I'd rather do it with Kxs, Axs vs him, 76d just looks too weak, has terrible equity if called, and OOp we are going to be called a lot.

      I thought SCs are good 3betting hands, but now I think they are not as good. What do you think?
      I AGREE that we cant call it here.
      But is EV(3b)>0 here?

      So you rather 3-bet hands that are easily dominated by his calling range? Like K4s?

      76d doesn't have that terrible equity. You flop draws or backdoors enough that you can barrel a lot.If you start to 3-bet K4 type hands versus regs OOP (which is ok if they fold a lot still) how do you play when you hit your K? How much money do you put in?

      K4s has 31,5% equity vs JJ,TT
      Maybe I like it because of the blocker effect? Makes AK, KK less likely, so I'd be happer on a Kh board.

      I mean, 67s is behind equitywise very badly against ALL his calling range. Yeah I can sometimes flop draws, but equitywise this hand is just terrible compared to TT,KK, AK etc, that is why I think K4s is better.

      Generaly we have big FE on A, Kh boards in 3b pots, so...
      On a K high board, I might do a delayed CB, or call one-2 of his bets, because it's hard to bet for value, but I'm pretty much the favorit there.

      Postflop only, until you get better overall, you will lose a lot more with K4s type hands than with 76s type hands.

      So what's your equity with each of these hands versus a calling range that he can have? And no, TT and JJ are not the only hands he can call with.

      Ups... Even though I have a blocker, I get dominated pretty badly... I thought that blocker is a nuclear weapon, but it seems it's not as important as I thought,...

      There you go !

      The blocker is great in spots where people play a lot of raise or fold (like when we 4-bet, or we 3-bet IP CO vs BTN).
