3. Using the same logic, should we be calling with the same hand from the button versus the villain opening from the cutoff? Assuming his button and cutoff ranges to be similar.
4. Do you think much value is lost by folding.
Sorry if it seems like I am nit picking, I just want to understand the thought process behind your play rather than just memorising it.
1. Dominated by his 3-bet calling range, not his opening range. This is a critical concept to understand.
2. Donk some flops, check-raise others if he c-bets too much, check-call others. It really depends on the flop and the villain.
3. Really depends on the blinds.
4. Not really, but it just forces you to navigate marginal situations and thus get better in the long run if that's your goal. It's probably slightly -EV for a multi-tabling beginner and def +EV for a single-tabling winning player.
No good HU player would fold A4s to a button raise as far as I know.
