Got into an argument w/ my brother about this. Interested in getting some other opinions from good players.
Standardish 16/12 - 18/14 reg opens from one of the first 3 positions. Let's say his fold to 3-bet is like 60-65% w/ no crazy positional anomalies. He views us about the same. It folds to us in the blinds.
In general, how do you approach constructing a 3b range in these kinds of spots? Could having no 3b range at all be a reasonable strategy?
That was my first thought: really polarized w/ a lot of the best suited connectors.
What about the value portion of your range? Not that balance is super important at NL100, but what kind of value/air ratio would you think is close to optimal? (once again just talking in generalities obv)
Probably belongs in the theory forum, but I would think that having blockers might be more helpful than building a pot oop with sc's or anything really. I'm curious to hear why you want to construct a blind 3b range against ep opens.
Well our argument was over whether or not having no 3b range at all was that bad.
I was also just curious what an average reg's 3b range generally looks like in this spot and/or how it would be perceived if we 3b. (I come from a 6-max/HU background FWIW...so I'm still learning what FR ranges look like)
