Is there a (SW) to accompany this post or are you serious?
We're in a 100bb game.The only more favorable boards we don't have a set on are like 2-2-6-9 rainbow... not too many of themIf you fold here, honestly, you're saying to wait to hit a set with pairs unless you have AA/KK, because the bet presented here is like the weakest bet possible, and the people advocating folding I know to be habitual C-bettors. So if you three bet them preflop, and c-bet, but fold to any turn bet... just think about it here... you're creating a big pot you're not playing without a set, so you may as well just keep the pot small and play them passively, because all you're looking to do with the three bet and c-bet is pick up the pot... and you're risking a lot more of your own chips in relation to what you can win by taking this line.As far as the hand goes...I'm not disagreeing that people would play set hands or A-A / K-K this way, or that it's probably the best way to approach their hand if that's what they're holding. It just drives me bonkers to no only assume an unknown is holding a monster, but to assume he plays it perfectly. It's a rare enough occurrence that we're going to run into a brick wall with Q-Q at six max on a favorable board, but to have it played well by an unknown? Surely you don't think the majority of players are awesome players... and if you do then I guess that's why we don't see eye to eye. I mean it seems
when you guys approach hands you put yourselves
in the villain's shoes and are blind to anything you
wouldn't play in such a manner... but I digress... the point is, when the combination of cards a villain can be holding aren't in huge disporpotions favoring one move over the other, you've really got to look at how often a player will play those hands in such a manner... and I just don't see the majority of players playing hands that beat us this way, but I do see the majority of players being capable of making blocking bets, and being capable of getting involved preflop with a marginal holding, especially since the villain has almost every right to believe that UTG is coming along for the ride in this preflop situation, and that this isn't a full ring game.Wow that was a long post... it'll prolly be ignored especially since *I* posted it lmfao.
