Yes, you make some very good points. I definitely agree that a 4bet/fold strategy is way superior at these high rake settings. However, i still have trouble where to draw that line 3%3bet range to a 6%.

3% = JJ,QQ,KK,AA, AKo,AKs 40 combos
4%= same as above plus AQo AQs 56 combos
6%= same as above + AJ suited TT,99 84 combos.

I think I can say without a doubt 3% is not a "light" 3bet range.
I can also say without a doubt 4%.

6% I can say we do need to start playing back at, but let's say I was explaining this to a complete beginner. How do I show this mathematically or rationally?

Post | botb posted in Courses Forum: FTGU episode 17 Facing 3bets

Currently working my way back up at 5NL zoom and my biggest leak so far is over reacting to 3bets in either defending way too much (4bets+ caloling) or giving way too much credit.

I went back to basics and rewatched episode 17 and while i fully understand the approach, how do I incorporate villains 3bet frequency into the methodology that is used in this video?

For example: If a villain is 3betting 3% am I still going to be defending (let's assume sizing is the same 3.5x i believe he used in the video) roughly 40% of my opening range as opposed to a villain whose 3 betting 6% etc.

I've read and spent hours searching up this topic and I've seen that some suggestions are if a villain is 3betting so low, just exploitative fold, but then my counter to that is where do you draw the line? Also since this is zoom 5NL most of the time villains 3 betting tendencies aren't properly known.
