Again a question about your CCing and 3betting range on the left hand table with 98s.
Do you coldcall 3 with PPs, if so with any? I guess T9s is close aswell.
How do you balance it? With which Hands would you coldcap? 99+AKo+ maybe AQs aswell? Do you sometimes coldcall with AA or KK to mix it up or do you think the value you loose is more than the deception you create 4way?
about the Flopplay: you probably bet out with Sets on that Board aswell to balance your play I guess, Do you c/r at all on that kind of flop?
Up until a few months ago I've never had a call-2 range here - preferring to cap or fold anything I want to play (and this goes moreso for when the ranges are wider in a BTN/SB steal resteal or a CO/BTN steal resteal. Fnupple had a nice post about it which got me thinking, and also just there are some spots when the action comes from earlier position, or there's a bad player in the pot (or multiple ones) where not getting to the flop just seems wrong somehow. As I slowly move up, people are also more aggressive preflop, wider ranges, and more aware of stealing and restealing, so I think my preflop play needs to become more fluid as well, to match that.
So I'd say it's a spot I'm currently working on in my game - incorporating a call-2 range here. I do like OTR's recommendation in a FR game of when the raise comes from early position to cc the SB with hands you'd normally 3bet with. In the last few months I've been sometimes calling 2 here, probably with a pretty unbalanced range of stuff like QJs, JTs, smaller pocket pairs types of hands.
If I were going to coldcap I'd do it with the range you listed; maybe tweaking it a little based on who the pfr and pf3b are. If they're both super laggy then I'm opening up my range obviously.
I think eventually I will shift to calling 2 here with a lot more stuff, and possibly balancing it by including my big hands in that range as well, to balance and protect my range - stuff like AA, AKs balances stuff like 55, JTs. It's still in flux for me though.
Flop action - this is assuming I call 2 pf, right, and not that I capped? I would donk out strong value hands multiway 4handed, sure, especially on a board texture where it might not always get cbet. That would be with hands where I want/welcome heavy multiway action, like sets, big draws, maybe nut overpairs. I'd look to checkraise more with reasonable/medium value hands that benefit from protection and maybe folding some other players out - top pair, medium pocket pairs, etc. I'd be checking my misses too, obviously, like overcards.
