[NL2-NL10] NL10 ATs 3b defence

      Preflop: since villain is pretty much an unknown I think that calling ATs IP might be too wide an adjustment without knowing villain better. However, I have been trying to find spots to call IP a little wider since I looked at a recent session where I was folding close to 90% vs 3b's over a 2k hand session.

      As a standard what sort of range would you normally defend vs 3bs? If we assume to begin with that people are only 3-betting QQ+ and AKo should we either be 4b/broke for value with QQ+ or folding until we have reason to believe that villain 3b's wider than this and start adjusting by 4b bluffing sometimes and calling a wider range and perhaps vale 4betting wider in some cases?

      As played...

      Flop: Pretty good flop for me. I am only in bad shape vs JJ/KK (maybe 33's but don't expect to see this very often). When villain bets close to pot I know think that he has something like TP+ and good draws. I don't see any point in raising here as due to the preflop and flop action and I don't think that I have much fold equity anyway (maybe vs something like AJ/QQ but I think this a very small part of his range, i.e. I think there are more hands in his range that play bet/call or bet/broke)

      I don't get correct expressed odds with 12 outs but due to the above I think that I have significant implied odds, plus I am IP and think I can extract at least a 1/2 pot bet on the T or R.

      Turn: Calling for the same reasons as above.

      River: :P :P

      Hi Muel,

      Preflop: Against unknowns I prefer to 4-bet/fold in spots like this (as a bluff).

      I normally don't defend a big range at these limits without some info but we can call hands like 99-JJ or AQ.

      As played the calls are close because some of the draws we have put 4 to a straight on the board but we should have enough implied.
