So I went into solved ranges and I feel good about them. The only thing concerning me is defending versus 3bets. Until now I thought that we suppose to overfold versus them but some good players I have discussed this issue, disagree.
My point is that should not we adjust in a spot where opponent suppose to 3b something like 8% like the preflop Sim suggests, but 3b 6% in practise for example? What are your thoughts?
What is the worst pair you defend versus 3b, utg 2.5bb BU 3b to 8 bb 100ef?

I think the best way is just practice. But before make sure you understand a move in a good degree. Solvers may help here to show you what combo and when you should XR but don't forget you can't just copy a solver or snowie, you should somehow understand when to deviate from optimum play, hud stats can help here. If villain is station size up your XR and raise only value hands etc. And last don't get frustrated if something is not working in a vacuum, variance is a thing and goes with poker hand by hand.

This hand was played on phone.
Hero MP opens AsQd, BU flats, SB flats.
Flop is AhKs7h
SB x, Hero cbets, BU 2bets small, Hero 3bets, BU shoves, Hero calls.
I couldn't really find a hand except A7, 77 that beats me on that board. I have all AA, KK, AK. And I had read on him being full of shit.
He shows 10s8h and wins.

Well I am playing at 20NL atm and pool just seems to be very passive and regs generally seem to be very imbalanced in certain spots and don't adjust when you get out of line.
I strongly bealive that this idea of getting exploited is more a psichological fear than a real fact. At least at lower limits.

That is a good point. It is hard to describe in words, generally I would say after long sessions I start to tilt if I am card dead and making plays based on emotion. Some small mistakes.
What do you mean others to fight back. I never understand that. From what I see, when there is a fish table, everyone is just playing their normal game, just little bit looser.

When I told my mother that I have new hobby that 1 day can turn into my main income the first thing she did was searching on the net and reading some horse shit claiming online poker is rigged. Ofc she bealived it and no matter what I say I can not change her mind. Even the fact that I turned 5 euro to 700 in 2 months.

Come to Nebet I take you for a walk to the town.
Sorry for being rude but any1 claiming online poker, nowadays on the biggest site is rigged is an idiot. Accept that you suck and improve your game or stop playing. Everything else is just excuses.....

I expect a reg to raise lot of bluffs on this board which seems much better for him also turn and river improved his flop calling range and he should have more 3s and 4s than you.
I check this flop and fold river without read.

I base my statement on my experience. Guy seems way to passive. These guys afraid to risk a lot of bb with weak hands, this is the reason they have so small rfi and 3b pre stats. They also afraid to bluff, this is the reason you should overfold versus these guys. Not only this but this is also a 3b pot, that means they have to risk even more bb. I doubt he has ATs in his range. Or should I say that he will never have enough bluffs in his range to make your turn call +EV.

Tir-x May I express my disagreement about using solvers at low stakes? First of all I want to say that I have never used a solver by myself but I have been reading a lot of hand reviews on 2 plus 2 that involve some output from a solver for the last 6 months.
My homble opinion is the most difficult part using a solver is to know when and how you should deviate from a theory right play. Also node locking can provide us better output when we get some idea of how villain plays/constract his range. This missaplication of solver is when mistakes are made.
Also exploitative strategy goes hand in hand with gto. How can you exploit properly if you don't know how someone is deviating from theory?
There is also a misconception that someone who is using solver is trying to copy every frenguency /move exactly which obviously is stupid and not true against low stakes players at least.
My last point is there are some really tough spots sometimes that you literally can not figure up what is the best play even out of the table. And I doubt you will find a decent advice online without a solver output. In that case solver comes to give as light and show us the right way, it is up you to follow or not thought.

I open some low SC from late position and 3b some as snowie suggests.
There is a video which talks about SC and basically saying that SC has not implied odds bc you lose to better flush so you are never comfortable playing for big pot when you hit your flush. The video also saying that SC has great bluff potential bc it connects with so many ways to the flop and they should be played IP.
SC are also great for board coverage for your 3b range otherwise your range becomes too transparent and obviously you can stack big overpairs when you hit your 2 pairs or trips bc not too many players will expect you to 3b with 56 for example.
There is an argument that 45s 56s 67s are better than 78s 89s bc the latter has some riverse implied odds and it doesn't really make a big difference if you have a pair of 5 or 8 in 3b pot.
There is also an argument that SC are better 3b candidates than a hand like KQ AJ for example bc the latter can be dominated in 3b pot.
I disagree with you saying that everyone is playing around SC. You may be unlucky and don't get enough value out of them. My "small" experience in my games says the opposite.

Solvers have shown that as rake increases the flating range decreases to the point that it becomes a big 3/4/5 bet game.
Database have shown that 3b or fold is more profitable strategy.
By flating you encourage squeeze. You play capped range. You face difficult decisions postflop which translates in more mistakes.
By 3 betting you make your decisions much more easy. You can cbet at high frequency IP , you can fully realize your equity bc people don't x/r enough, you are uncapped.
I dont know which way you are paying more rake but I know that playing 3b or fold is definitely better EV strategy.

If villain is aggressive postflop I would raise flop but i would take your line also sometimes.
The problem is that in bvb battle people don't bealive and call lighter that in other positions because of that I am more selective with my bluffs and ofc the villain I am bluffing.
