Re: Not Quite Threadworthy--Low Stress Strat Questions

What to do when I want to 3! to isolate but it doesn't work? I have been working on 3! from LP to isolate a MP raiser. This happened a few times yesterday. Assume 100bb eff. Two limpers, guy makes it 15. I have a 3! hand, make it 40. Next thing you know its 4-5 ways to a flop. I feel like I am just trying to hit the lottery. If I raise more, say to 50-60 and get one caller then I am in a ~100 pot with 150 left. Lets say I c-bet for 50 and get called, I am left with a half size pot bet on the turn.

Never mind I think I am answering my own questions. Need to pick better boards to c-bet on and really have a plan for the turn. Move along.

I would just never get out of line and basically only 3bet hands that I am totally comfortable getting in the rest of stacks on most any flop. You could almost simply do QQ+/AK here.

Assuming CO folds (and he's pretty capped here, so he likely is), your call sets up a HU pot with an SPR of <2:1 with a speculative hand OOP. This is a turbo muck.
I think this is right. Damn, I still have those fish tendencies, damn.

V showed Qh Jh, and held.

Was surprised to see QJhh, thought he was overpair and big ace only (or possibly set, which is why I nearly folded flop).

Pretty bad play PF by H.
