Villain: Running 22/22 over 44 hands, seems solid, not out of line, player search off.
History: He raised BTN I 3bet he folded, He raised CO I flatted 99 in the SB and called flop/turn on 28K2xx and saw free showdown where he didn't value bet AA on brick river (so likely very nitty/maybe slightly bad).
Advantage of calling: we keep in wide range and allow him to value bet worse/bluff post flop
Disadvantages: OOP, pretty much guessing post flop, get bluffed off sometimes and get outdraw others
Advantages of 3betting: we capture our equity and take down the 4.5BB already in the pot which were happy with, have good equity when called, we take the initiative if we do see a flop, we aren't guessing post flop
Disadvantages of 3betting: we get 4bet sometimes and have to fold, we probably only keep in better hands and narrow his range to hands that beat us
So based on those advantages and disadvantages, what side of the fence do you lean on when in the blinds with a range which is ahead against an unknown BTN steal?
I know it's villain dependent, but what is the 'standard' move?
