Re: Flatting a 3 Bet when you don't close the action

If my opponents are so tight that I think AA38r is a fold, we should be able to generate tons of profit by cold-4betting a reasonable range of hands that flop very well, including Axxx. If I'm in doubt about whether they 3b or get it in light, then I'll move a bunch of those hands into the cold-flatting range. But finding reasons to fold AAxx preflop in position is not a money spinner.
I checked some solver ranges and in this exact spot it folds something like 1% of aaxx, 25% of aaax. Most of the aaxx that fold are aaax rainbow.
