Thanks David! Appreciate your help. So AQ + and 1010+ against Villain’s 3 bet range?

villan’s 3 bet strategy is any suited Ace, 99-AA, KQs and A10 off to AK.

Thanks for all your help Mancuso. Some of the adjustments I have made include coldcalling and over calling with premium hands when Villain is in a position to squeeze. Also calling 3 bets with all pairs 66-99. Have not yet tried a polarized 4 bet strategy. Given that Villain’s 3 bet range is so A heavy, how would you construct a polarized 4 bet range? As I mentioned, Villain will almost always call 4 bets. Given that we have almost no fold equity preflop, is a polarized 4 bet strategy advisable?

Thanks. The problem with slow playing AA KK preflop is that Villain will 4 bet shove QQ AK+. Also Villain will call big 4 bets with hands like KQs and call at least two streets if he flops top pair. Villain will also peel 5 bets with JJ and 1010. And call flop on board textures favorable to him. I have been calling middle pairs v his 3bets and they have proved very profitable. I suppose being patient is probably close to optimal against Villain. But it’s annoying to open A10 preflop in CO have button call and then to face a 5.5 to 6x 3bet from Villain in BB and to see that he had A9off preflop. Although Villain’s style makes my premium hands much more profitable, I am Having a hard time with hands like A10 to AQ and 88-66. If I call Villains squeeze, we get multiple callers and I am sandwiches on the flop v Villain’s almost certain c bet and multiple players to act after me.

I play in a deep stack 5 10 25 game. One of the regulars in the game 3 bets and squeezes wide (range is any suited Ace and hands like A10 off in addition to premiums). The game plays quite deep with 150 tto 300 BBs. For example, 5 10 25 (straddle hand), UG opens to 75, Villain 3bets to 250 from EP, I make it 700 from SB with AA, EP calls and Villain jams for 3100.
Post flop, especially in a HU pot, Villain c bets 90%. Turns and rivers are often barreled especially on scare cards.
What are some of the adjustments I need to make preflop and post flop?
