      I think I'm leaking money by being too tight. When I don't get donations from spazzy players my graph usually goes down slowly and consistently. I also don't know which hands to call and which hands to 3bet, especially 3bet bluffs and especially in the blinds

      Any way:

      SB: VPIP 16.80 PFR 11.46 RFI 26.03 3bet 3.53 Fold to 3bet after raise 57.78
      BB: VPIP 14.41 PFR 4.86 RFI - 3bet 3.65 Fold to 3bet after raise 57.14
      UTG: VPIP 13.74 PFR 13.67 RFI 13.67 3bet - Fold to 3bet after raise 55.37
      MP:VPIP 14.64 PFR 13.31 RFI 15.82 3bet 0.95 Fold to 3bet after raise 58.42
      CO: VPIP 17.85 PFR 15.46 RFI 22.16 3bet 1.73 Fold to 3bet after raise 66.94
      BTN:VPIP 23.00 PFR 18.14 RFI 32.77 3bet 3.02 Fold to 3bet after raise 62.07

      Overall:VPIP 16.8 PFR 13.09 RFI 19.75 3bet 3.01 Fold to 3bet 60.54

      I suspect the fold to 3bet stats are not accurate, cause they are a lot higher in during basically every session I play. Normal fold to 3bet is overall about 81%. Total is about 35k hands 3.01

      What is the best way to fix this?

      hi Riverdiver

      UTG looks ok but fold to 3bet seems quite low even for a UTG range... MPseems ok as well but your 3bet% seems to be KK+ only :D

      imo your biggest problem is quite apparent. i dont think it's to do with folding to 3bets either. instead, it seems that you are a bit too tight in CO and especially BU. a good RFI % from CO would be around ~25% and for BU ~45% (assuming you play SH). now the main thing here isn't to adjust this by simply rofl spamming the raise button whenever you are in CO and BU, but instead understand this dynamic a little better. ask yourself the following questions when you are first to act in CO/BU:
      - who is in BU/SB/BB?
      - how do these guys play postflop?
      - what am i trying to achieve with my hand?
      - will i get 3bet a lot if i open?
      - what will i do if i get 3bet?
      - will i get a ton of calls and some stupid multiway pot?
      - will everyone fold?

      take a look at some of the open raising ranges for BU and CO and try to open them just for a while - sounds a bit basic and you probably know it but it is really helpful to just have a basic understanding of the hands you open and why. that doesnt mean i'm suggesting chart poker ofc and BU and CO are definitely 2 of the most dynamic seats at the table. sometimes you can open any 2, other times you'll have to tighten up and so it really does depend on who is behind. most important thing is to understand why you are opening.

      about the 3bets, i think you also have a leak here but you already know it so i think you should definitely try and work on your 3bet game. 3.01% is a bit too tight and it pretty much looks like JJ+ and AQ+ (maybe slightly tighter). you should never have just a static 3betting range and instead tailor your strategy to your opponents and come up with good reasons to do it.

      i don't want this to be an essay so i wont go into it myself, but instead i'll link you to mbml's video on 3betting which really helped me out in understanding what to do. ==>here<==

      hope it helps! and gl

      At 81% fold to 3bet it is +EV for people to 3bet any two cards against you. Not that they will be, but its something you have to be aware of.
