I have a coach that tells me to 3bet/fold vs a UTG open with AQo. I ask him why? He says that its because its so hard to win post flop, in order for us to win, UTG must check, we bet and he has to fold. If he doesn't fold we are probably beat. Also cause it's so hard to flop a pair, once flop comes out and UTG cbets we have to fold cause we have only ace high vs UTG.
Giev some general questions on how you generally approach these hands then.
Standard reg raises UTG and you have AJo (or suited, doesnt matter i guess) OTB or in the CO.
Here alot of guys say that i can't call because i will be dominated postflop...
Yeah theory wise i guess maybe that's the case, but in the real ****ing world, people make mistakes postflop, turn small PP's into bluffs where i can bluffcatch, i can float alot of flops, bluff/raise some flops, flop twopair. Etc etc..
KTs in CO or BTN, JTs. QJs, QJo. Am i allowed to call with these or can i tell the guys that tell me that i can't do this to shut the **** up because the boss thinks otherwise? (You are the boss)
And also if BTN raises (a reg) and i'm in the blinds, everyone says ATo etc is a 3-bet/fold hand, and i just think to myself "stfu", it depends..
(I like postflop poker, and i miss it so much these days
