      Hi !
      I am asking that for microstakes, nl2 to nl10.
      I think I don't play very good with 50bb effective stacks.
      Do you have any tips for adapting against that stack depth?

      Right now I think that frequent strength hands like paired hands and good broadways increase in value, and small pairs and suited connectors that are more versatile decrease, since they made strong hands less often.

      Do you adapt your 3betting or 4betting range?

      Since I am having trouble to play against those guys, I guess somebody who plays optimally with 50bb can get significant edge, so may be with a good strategy it could be profitable to play like that.

      I guess that people will tend to fold more to 3 bets, and it might be interesting to develop a strategy 3 betting quite wide and just shipping it on good flops should possibly result in some profitable results without requiring too much skills.

      Thanks for your replies !
      You mean opening 5bb UTG, 4bb MP, 3CO, 2BTN?
      For 3 bet sizing, say usually I do 4x OOP and 3x IP, so now should I do 2x IP and 3x OOP?
      When 3betting wider do you use linear or polar range? do you add hands from folding or from calling range?
