      SB: $51.61 (103.2 bb)
      Hero (BB): $64.30 (128.6 bb)
      MP: $50.25 (100.5 bb)
      CO: $73 (146 bb)
      BTN: $66.68 (133.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 5 5
      3 folds, SB raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, SB raises to $9.50, Hero raises to $64.30 and is all-in,

      I've been playing with my BB defend ranges, and If I want a somewhat wide 3bet range, I should widen my 5bet range aswell, what do you think about 3b/5b 22-55 bb vs sb? SB is oop, so I think it this spot a standard villain would 4bet more, than if he were IP.
      So I'd 3bet/5bet with TT+,AQ+, and 22-55. Thats 86 combos, and put some Kxs, Qxs, Axo in my bluff range, about ~110 combos. What do you think?

      i don't like 3-betting 22-55 by default. Villain's counter is to 4-bet/call with 77-TT here and those pairs are crushing your small PPs. I usually prefer 3-betting these pairs OOP occasionally, when I feel that the dynamic makes villain much more likelier to 4-bet bluff.

      Also in position, villain should be likelier to call the 3bet with those mid pairs as opposed to 4betting them.
