simply because if I 3b and get called, then cbet and the guy doesnt play that weak vs cbets, then I never have a hand that turns enough equity to barrel profitably usually.
but against people who fold to cbets in 3b pots a lot, its better to have a PP postflop because when he calls flop, I'm not barreling equity to get folds but instead usually need to bink a 2 outer to improve to the best hand and getting floated and having no turn equity isnt an issue.
If your opponent has a very wide button range and doesn't fold to your 3bet often enough, your cbet on the flop is actually a value bet, because you're probably still ahead.
Also, against such an opponent, set mining becomes easier because you can win a big pot with a set without him even hitting the flop
