3bet notes from ANLHE by Thomas Bakker

3 bet pots have an interesting post flop dynamic

  1. The 3bettor is most likely OOP (assuming villain is playing correctly) and is representing the strongest range
  2. Ranges are narrower, resulting in players mostly either completely hitting or missing the flop
  3. Stack to pot ratio is small, meaning if they fold too often, they lose too much money

factors 2 and 3 above result in an interesting situation; you must win the pot often, but you also miss the flop often. Therefore you must play very aggressively in 3bet pots.

Choosing to 4 bet or move all in

We need to consider how tight our villains 5bet range is. If it is so tight that our range contains hands that have less than 33% equity, we should opt to make a pot sized four bet. If our opponents range is looser, we should only shove or fold against his 3bets.

Cold calling 3 bets

Calling 3bets OOP is a bad strategy, so we should opt to fold many of our hands

3betting OOP

It's best to 3bet mostly with hands that give us certainty about their strength on the flop

  1. Strong suited connectors - they make strong draws that have huge equity when the hit the flop and allow us to play very aggressively
  2. Smaller pocket pairs - we know we are generally behind when they miss and ahead when we make a set
  3. Non-dominated broadways AK and AQ. You can consider widening this if you opponent has a wider 4betting range
General 3betting notes post flop

As a general rule, you should bet most flops due to factors mentioned earlier (smaller SPR means folding too often is too costly and both players miss the flop often). If your opponent is unaware of bet sizing, or will fold at the same frequency regardless of bet size then bet smaller, it's more +EV


There are several factors that influence the profitability squeezing:

  • How loose is the initial raiser?
  • How likely is it that the cold caller(s) is(are) slow playing a big hand?
  • How likely are the other players to bluff shove all in?
  • How well can your hand do by simply calling along rather than 3betting?
  • How aware are your opponents that you could be capable of squeezing without a great hand?

For squeezing, we need to have hands that are not dominated post flop. Very similarly to the hands we would opt to 3bet OOP; strong suited connectors, small pocket pairs (WAWB) and non-dominated broadways.

Dealing with Squeezing

Dealing with getting squeezed is fairly easy.  Don't call often OOP. Exploit a player who is squeezing with a large range by either calling and slow playing your big hands, or 4bet shipping a wide range of hands.
