If a TAG behinds you caps it sucks

If a fish behind you calls you still get your money in with an edge and maybe position.

Also. Note that when a players has a PFR of 40 his opening standards will often be looser. Maybe 50%. The fact that its only 40% is since they will just call a lot of hands when there is a raise before them.


Seriously. When LAGtastic morons with 40-50% opening ranges open you should 3-ball just about anything playable with a bit of SD value.

Not only do you have an edge of the money going in but you will absolutely rape this guy postflop in position.

When I read the preamble, I was expecting to see something really marginal like K7s. Then I saw you had KTs and thought LOL fist pump 3 bet.

i like this thinking, I AM ALWAYS ISOLATING HIM if less players are behind, the point was to stress that i still have 3 unknowns behind me that i can get in trouble with this hand.

This is why 3betting with k5s is a bad play in this spot.

3betting with K5s is the sign of an inflated ego. Most people who play this game today aren't dumb and will realize you're isolating lightly. They will widen their 4bet range and you will get pwned.

If it were up to me, I would remove the gradient from my avatar, delete Larm's avatar, look up the results of "K5s" on Oink's PT (while not on the button or cutoff) and then fold.

because this is the mark of an opponent who is not dumb? We have position on him, why do we care if he caps? because its a bad thing when a spewy opponent decides to fight back by getting more spewy?
