How "Rigid" Should Your Range Be?

I am probably not wording this correctly.

Cash game. Let us assume you have starting stacks of 100 BB. Let us say that you are facing a MP 3x raise from a loose-passive player and it folds to you in the CO.

Let us say you look down at ATs.

Let us say that you have made the decision to call with this hand.

In the future, if you are ever in this spot again, will you *ALWAYS* call with this hand? Would you ever fold or raise with this hand? For example, would you call 80% of the time but raise 20% of the time with this exact hand in this same spot?

What you do with marginal hands is dependent on what kind of opponent you think you are facing. Readless I would fold the hand due to my read on how I think the majority of player play in this point in time.

Re: How "Rigid" Should Your Range Be?

It sounds like you are asking

'In a single session, if all variables are the same, do you make the same decision every time'

In general, any time a poker player becomes consistent, they become predictable, and then they are toast. In practice, it is almost impossible to consistently encounter the same spot often enough for people to get a read on ow you play it, so, unless you are a reg or a tournament pro and players are studying your hands, it is probably OK to play the same spot consistently.

Somehow the first time I read it I thought I had AT in the sb. In the co I can see me calling, 3 beting or folding.

Re: How "Rigid" Should Your Range Be?

Against a fish I'm never going to do that because it doesn't matter. You pick the highest EV and go from there. The only reason you would do this is if the EV of different options are roughly the same and by playing hands differently at different times your opponent has a harder time figuring out your ranges. If he sees a hand on showdown he doesn't yet know how often you have that hand so you can gain some money by letting him make false assumptions. It's a small effect so unless you're playing against wizards don't bother.

Re: How "Rigid" Should Your Range Be?

Some hands have mixed strategies, some don't.

I'm pretty much never flatting or folding AA in that spot (I always 3-bet), but for ATs, 76s, AQo, KJs and a few others, all options (call, fold, 3-bet) are on the table. Knowing something about the opener (or the other players still to act) can sway me more toward a particular option.
