Having Your 3-bets Cold Called

Okay I realise there is a few hands and situations here to digest, but I would be interested to hear everyone’s thoughts on these spots. For the most part I’m assuming AA, KK are mandatory stack offs in all these situations, where it gets interesting is when you have <=QQ or flop top pair or something. Additionally, are you just completely giving up with hands like AK and AQ when you miss? I think its kind of interesting when villain’s could be cold calling with these big ace hands also.

What ranges are you assigning to regs when they cold call you in these situations and consequently how are you proceeding on these flops with?

  • The first hand is interesting.

  • That 1st hand is interesting.

    I don’t want to get stacked off with that kind of flop so I would bet 70 and fold to a push with qq, ak and make a hesitant call with kk.

    By the way, I’ve got a question about your website if you wouldn’t mind emailing me back.
