Sorry about that.
In general, I wouldn't be comfortable 3-betting, because, well, I suck playing larger pots OOP. When I get better, I hope to learn to do that.
For me, Foxfox1 called the play correctly: lead the flop, hope he raises, which allows me to get stacks in either there or on the turn. If he goes call, call, then I b/f the river (I'd have to check stack size at that point to be sure about the "f" part of b/f).
Thanks all for the ideas - it's invaluable.
i hope i`ll going to remember this...
i remember some of your posts on this subject....
tenor:why should i bloat the pot oop with a mediocre hand?
without having a pf edge?etc..
-you are focusing too much on your pf-equity (aka your hand vs perceived range)....
-you undersetimate value of cbetting
let`s say you 3bet 10-15% bb vs bu steal,you cbet 80%+ (2/3 pot)...
your cbet will be successful 40%+....
successrate for turn cbet will be similar...
that`s why defending by raising is so much better than defending by calling
