Re: Dumb Preflop Question

I'm not that confident in those ranges.

Also, I wasn't saying UTG+2 should be 3!ing with that range, just the range I put him on.

I mean given that read I'd cap. But I wouldn't if I wasn't confident in it.

It's only a mistake if you like making money. When people behind me fold AQ vs my 3bets, I start 3betting WAY more. #freeMoney
The more you fold, the more animal I play.

I completely understand this concept. I feel uncomfortable in certain situations against a very, very small number of players. I know it isn't likely to be the best play to fold here. I do make up for it against these 4 or 5 guys by fighting back when I do end up in the pot with them as they give me more respect, as they should.

Be careful thinking you "make up for it" by being aggro when you do enter the pot.

Since your range has such crushing equity vs mine, I will simply adjust by mostly checking to your range + just calling w\ hands slightly stronger than normal. (In other words, I'm very concerned with strengthening my checking range since your range is too strong overall)

It's much better to just play correctly preflop, make the cold cap + just be willing to check back lots of flops! Don't feel married to the pot.
