1/2 nl how light are we 3! Here?

Ok so game is about done (3 hands left). Hero is in SB it folds to HJ who makes it $6, co calls btn folds.

Hero covers both
Hj - $450. Pretty weak tight player. He has counted his chips and has them in 2 stacks "buy in and profit". The profit is around $35. Two hands ago he limped 79 and jammed $420 into a $15 flop bet ($20 in pot) on a 568 board after hemming and hawing about how to play the hand.

Co - everyone acts like he is OMC but he is playing 30-35% of hands, he just doesn't play with any aggression.

Standard raise pre is around $10 in this game. BB is really laggy but not a good lag. BB will likely fold to 3! Unless he picks up a monster (which is ATs to him).

So how light are we 3! Here?

Also I missclicked the flop in HJ description. It's 568

He flopped the nuts w/ a gutter to the straight flush, and just blasted everything in.

I guess the better question is do these circumstances make us widen or narrow our 3! Range?

That way we don't have to define a specific range.

Since MAGAhat basically said he is folding AA here I'll put him in the "narrow our range" bucket.

Not even close to the same thing.
I don't get this concept. If you didn't come to play poker why did you show up?

Is the last orbit just such a different game to you that you won't play it?

Sorry, MAGAHat is a long time troll in this forum. Tolerance is very short for trolls.

After biting a few times I realized this and just quit looking at his posts. But thanks

Probably would stick to a range like below for the spot described. Notice that against these players i dont see much value including much in the way of suited connectors.

88+, kjs+, kq, at+, and maybe half of your a3s, a4s, a5s combos.

Thanks, can you explain where you feel value comes from when we see a guy "lock it up" then open small?

I know what I did here and it worked but I don't know if I just miss-read the situation.

Meh, being OOP and deep you shouldn't be squeezing here super light and given that both players will have position on you.

Probably something like 88+, A9s+, KJs+, QJs, AQo+.
