Ladies DSE $400 BI: Just Stuff Pre?
DAY 2, 26 left, money bubble just burst.
9 handed table
Blinds 1.5k/3k, 400 ante
UTG (Vil) ~80k
HiJack (HERO) ~90k
Preflop Pot Total 8.1k
UTG raises to 6.5k
Folds to hero with AKo, Hero?
My question here is regarding stack size. Should I 3bet stuff or 3bet?
I can argue both sides.
3bet shipping gets me max FE. I also always want to see a full board with AK.
3betting may take down pot pre flop. I have yet to have a 3bet of mine cold called or 4bet in this field. If I ship pre flop I'm folding out all dominated aces and getting called by hands that have me smashed or I'm flipping at best. Most importantly I have position in this hand. If called, I can cbet (~20-22k)/fold and still have a 50k stack (I expect vil to release on flop unless she hits it in which case she'll let me know either by donk shipping or k/r all in).
Payout jumps a negligible IMO until we hit FT.
