Yeah this was obviously a huge derp by me. Villain was generally pretty TAG. I had never seen him limp/call UTG then just check/call like that. Made me think he was huge and I guess I got a little scared. I talked to him a bit ago and he said he thought the flop was AT5 not AT6 and he wanted to call to see "if I had an ace". He said he was gonna bet the river anyway but before he bet realized he misread the board and had a straight.

So we all know that 3betting on the btn vs co can be super profitable.What about flatting a really wide range, hands like 67o, K8o, J7s? In the past, I was always taught to just fold those hands because of domination, implied odds, etc. All valid reasons. However, if we have a post flop advantage as well as position, then I almost think it can be okay at times. I mean, those hands against a standard 3x raise are either slightly -EV or 0EV.So is it okay to take those slightly -EV spots pre flop because we're able to put ourselves into more +EV spots post flop?

I think in general it's better to be 3betting a polarised range and flatting the hands in the middle in BTN vs. CO situations. If you're flatting J7s/K8o there, what sort of hands are you 3betting?

I would still 3bet those hands in addition to a polarized range, but I would maybe split the frequency that I flat vs. 3bet hands like J7s and K8o if only to keep my range from becoming stagnant.

If you start flatting the btn a lot behind the CO I would think you have to watch out for the blinds squeezing a lot, don't think people ever believe you when you back raise them there so it's just putting out dead money isn't it?

James speaks from experience. I saw him play almost the identical hand against fighter, as James had 44 or 55 and fighter had the A3

just 3-bet imo, way harder to deal with out of position than you flatting

Yeah but no one has the balls to 5 bet bluff all in either. If they start getting that crazy then set a tarp for them.

if I have A3 then I have all the other Ax's. Amount of times he just gifts me a coin flip in that situation is criminal. Not to mention that 77's are loving life after making marginal to slightly losing plays. If there wasn't situations in which playing ATC was profitable then I wouldn't play 22-44. Just such shitty hands.
