      Going out on a limb a bit here....

      If I'm reading your stats correctly then villain is opening wide from the CO and 4betting a lot.

      So one way to deal with that is to alter your 3betting range to include a lot of hands that you're happy to 5bet shove i.e. suited aces and PPs 77+ or similar

      He's probably 4betting lots of hands with blockers that can't call a shove, so FE is good. If you do run into the top of his range like TT+/AK then a range consisting of PPs and suited A-high will have okay equity.

      This concept is still work-in-progress for me so I'd like to hear other's thoughts

      Hey guys,

      nooni2k is correct to some extent. The 3bet/5bet range he suggests will probably have enough equity but now, do a small check in Equilab and see what is the difference between 22 and 77 vs TT+, AK. :D

      You don't have enough hands on him to be decisive about 3bet/5beting that range. I also think you can consider just calling preflop. He opens ~45% from CO, you are closing the action and have a good hand. I would opt for preflop call and continue from there.

      At work without access to Equilab but I'm guessing they're actually virtually identical!

      Yes, they are very close.


             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    70.12%  69.83%   0.29% { TT+, AKs, AKo }
      MP3    29.88%  29.59%   0.29% { 22 }




             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    68.55%  68.36%   0.19% { TT+, AKs, AKo }
      MP3    31.45%  31.26%   0.19% { 77 }


      Therefore, it's likely that if we can 3bet/5bet 77 and expect calls only from TT+, AK, we will be able to do so with 22 as well since the equity difference is less than 2%. :)
