Thanks for posting mate!
First of all, difficult for me/us to be talking about V’s range here, no idea how he plays, we got no description.
As to yours, Q3s is definitely a fold. Like Warlock says, play tight against strong players and play loose against weaker ones. Stick to your ranges anyway, go look at Doug Polk’s latest videos : don’t play like these high-stakes donks who seem to have forgotten their pre-flop ranges.
I like Warlock’s over-limp range, although I think you could remove some hands like AJo, ATs, …
Totally correct ! This table is not such a loose table I think, with this stake level and with these opponents. You should definitely be thinking about raising on this table and not over-limping, although you could over-limp with some hands in a decent spot, like some low SC.
Let’s get to the actual hand…
Flop : pretty nice. V bets BIG here, he’s interested. What could he have ? Difficult to say, we need more info, but something like 45s, 35s, 34s, does he raise 44, 55 ?, can he limp some Ax’s, unsuited or suited like A4/A5 ? 23s.
What about the FD’s ? KsXs, 6s7s, 7s8s, 5s6s, maybe I forgot something… There’s a lot.
Anyway, in this spot I limp, even though your range would look pretty capped. What are you repping by raising here against such a big bet ? 44, 55 ? 45s, A4, A5 ? Big draws, with the KsXs and QsXs. Not much more, there are some bluffs and value hands.
I don’t think that you’re losing some kind of equity by only limping here, even though you got like 12 outs for the straight or flush.
When he 3-bets here, IDK. 44, 55 he wouldn’t just call, the simple FD’s he just gonna call I think. Mainly gonna be 3! these sort of hands : " 6s7s, 7s8s, 5s6s" + “45s, 35s, 34s” I think ? Same question : does he have A4/A5 for example ? He would be 3! these too.
Now what do you do ? Like you suggest, I prefer jamming here. It would be 5x the amount of his 3-bet, and it makes much more sense for you to try to get these hands that are in front like A4 for example or 5s6s to get them to fold their equity. It would put him in a difficult spot with certain hands.
So all in all, I don’t think that this was a profitable 4!, even though it’s difficult to say, you should define his range for us (please ) !
