      Hi, SB aggo reg, 24/21/2.4/8.1/20/477hands
      3b BU open 11%

      What do you think of calling 3bets IP vs aggro 3bettors? (planning to raise a lot of flops ofc)
      I normally tend to 4bet such spots, but I had 4bet him a few times recently.

      Tought spot OTF, but I thought he has enough air & one pair hands in his range to get folds.

      Not sure what to make of his range when he calls, maybe some overpairs? Tx? I don't think he calls much more, & raises sets/2pair if he has them.

      Don't think turn gives me any more FE, but Increases my pot equity so I just shipped it hopeing to fold out Tx & overpairs. I think I can rep sets fairly well.


      Hero (CO): $26.57 (106.3 bb)
      BTN: $10 (40 bb)
      SB: $42.09 (168.4 bb)
      BB: $28.61 (114.4 bb)
      UTG: $12.26 (49 bb)
      MP: $29.84 (119.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A 4
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BTN folds, SB raises to $2.50, BB folds, Hero calls $1.75

      Flop: ($5.25) 9 T 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $2.50, Hero raises to $6.90, SB calls $4.40

      Turn: ($19.05) 2 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $17.17 and is all-in, SB calls $17.17

      River: ($53.39) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $53.39 pot ($2.66 rake)
      Final Board: 9 T 7 2 7
      Hero showed A 4 and won $50.73 ($24.16 net)
      SB showed J K and lost (-$26.57 net)

      Hi.

      Flop: Very dependent on opponent's Flop cbet in 3b pot tendencies. If the number is very high, like 85%+, I would definitely bluff raise this Flop here. If it's low, like 60%, I would definitely give up on this flop cos I think his betting range here will be really strong.

      As played we should just shove the Turn and hope he folds some KJ QJ or weak Tx, A9 etc.

      Thanks.

      Thank you :)

      So do you like flatting vs aggressive regs pre with these suited Ax as a standard?
      I usually tend to 4b until I find out how they react to 4bets, but since he had defended vs some 4bets I thought it was ok.

      Hi,

      AXs tend to play not too well but if opponent's 3betting range is really wide or he just has some obvious postflop tendencies which you can exploit, or his 3bet size is small, then I would not mind defending it.

      I don't think A4s is strong enough to flat here. I would 4bet or fold. He 3bets 11% vs BU which means that his range vs CO is probably 8% and A4s is not strong enough vs such a tight range.
