Krantz, so given this, do you recommend raising to induce against these guys with hands that you usually wouldn't raise? Like say we flat a 3bet with 87s, the board comes 972r, and we haven't been caught bluff raising the flop yet. Do you like raising to represent frustration/trying to play back in order to induce a 3bet from air? Or if we flop a set on a totally dry board, while a lot of ppl would argue to slowplay against aggressive players especially when we are invulnerable, do you like raising there for the same reason as above (to rep frustration/bluffy playback)?
i recommend mixing it up in an effort to better intuit which play will induce more action for you. the context is constantly changing so there may be times when you will want to flat 78s and others where raising seems like it will be slightly better.
Question about deep stacked play,
Is 3-betting bad when you are deep outside of value hands? I was watching the durrrr challenge and they talked about this. Is it because, when you are oop at least, with the deeper stacks the guy IP can win the pot more often?
Is it because With 100bb stacks when you 3-bet the stack to pot ratio is lower making hands easier to play and negating the positional advantage but with deep stacks you can 3-bet and still have a high stack to pot ratio so it favors the guy IP a lot more?
