The ten nine off three bet was simply for fold equity, he was opening twenty five percent from the cutoff and isolating the donk limp. I did check his opening range from the cutoff before I did so. I felt like I could squeeze and scoop all the dead money all day every day regardless of my hand.
Didn't raise the min bet with AA, because min bets donk bets are always bluffs at ten nl and I thought I would give him a turn card to catch a pair.
I was 4xing every position and three xing the button. I never knew you should be 4xing when isolating. Until this weekend when dougie dan pointed it out to me during a sweat.
It kinda sounds like I need to turn some of my focus from trying to win every big pot to maybe some other fundamental areas of post flop play.
Aside from those two hands I feel like I have a ton to work on. I really am grateful for you guys taking the time out of your busy schedules to help out a donk like me.
Thank you.. Thank you.. Thank you..
on a side note what should my three betting range for value be from the blinds? I have fooled around with out but decided on keeping it tighter because I hate playing big pots oop.
I think your game is solid overall. The mistakes you made are very easy to correct.
I agree that you might be trying to win to many pots, and consequently hurting your win rate.
Thanks for being active in the forums and helping other members out. It's our pleasure to help you out any way we can.
Three betting from the blinds...
This depends on the player. I guess I will just give stats and then a general range of what I would 3 bet since its such a huge question.
44/22 fold to 3 bet of 40% (This 3 bet range could work on any donk that does nto fold to 3 bets 60/17 or 31/16 and so on.
TT+, maybe JJ+
I will not have an air range OOP vs this player.
For regish players that run around 22/18, steal of 35% and a fold to 3 bet of 60-70ish...
AJs, AQ, and QK if they dont 4 bet a lot. Calling is still fine since your hand will be stronger than their range in a single raised pot.
if they fold to 80% of 3 bets and / or play the flop in 3 bet pots very honestly you could 3 bet 22-55 (otherwise I fold those hands vs regs)
You can also 3 bet Q8s and other sooted hi card hands. They play better in 3 bet pots that 56s or something like that. (You make TP more often) Dont just randomly 3 bet sooted crap and post here when you get owned though. Have a read and a reason.
