So while I agree that it's possible to make a call-c/r strategy work against wide ranges, I think that most small stakes players would do better simply 3b'ing in those spots.
this is very true and i have been facing tough spots lately when flat calling hands like A8 and found myself clueless on dry board never knowing if i am just throwing away money by c/c 3 streets or giving up on rivers/turns.
and c/r flops w my A high doesn't seem to work either, i guess i need to try and change my game from the blinds soon.
