      1)PF: I think that vs a guy that is defending so wide my 3bet is a mistake. I should switch to a depolarized range of smth like : AJo+, ATs+, KQo, KJs+,66+. Good adaptation?

      2) His range for flatting seems to be very wide. RFI 54 * F3bet 0.58 = 31% range. Minus a 5% 4betting range --> 26% flatting range? Looks really high to me.

      3)F: His raise vs flop cbet in 3bp is 18 + the board texture --> I think he is likely raising light here with fd's, Ax type of hands. Don't really know how to best proceed from here. 3betting flop looks spewy as I am dominated a decent amount, calling is not appealing either as I have no sd value and psb left.

      4)T: Thought that I could make some better fd's fold this way, guess not :f_confused:

      Hi.

      Preflop: i think the 3b is acceptable with 8Ts but i would not 3b stuff like 65s. Size is a little too large for my liking but not a big deal.

      Flop: i would bet and fold. I think he plays very straightforward here and his raising range is highly weighted towards higher draws imo so i think u are dominated here. I think u are looking at his raise statwithout considering his fold to flo cbet stat of 54% which is really high. I dont expect him to ever bluffraise this flop texture.

      Turn: not sure what u rep here besides 3x which shouldnt be in your range too often. I think he should fold better flush draws a lot but if his range contains many better flushdraws in the first place shouldnt we fold flop?

      Abt his calling range, if his ft3b is 58, then u should multiply his 54% range by 0.42 and not 0.58.

      :facepalm:
      22% is much more reasonable :D

      What is your 3bet range in this spot vs this guy ?

      I think 78s+,79s+,A2s+,K2s+,Q7s+,J8s+,T8s+,ATo+,KTo+,QTo+ seems reasonable to me. It's quite a bit of hands but still I think it's fine vs a 54% open

      Im not 3betting 22-77 ill just fold them as they play poorly in3b pots and i dont think calling from sb is going to be too profitable.

      Ill 3bet 88-AA and ill probably shove TT+ vs a 4bet. If dynamic is aggro ill shove 88/99 too.
