Default 6max 3betting question.

2/4NL 6 players
It is folded to BTN who opens for $14, SB calls $14 and you wake up in the BB with 98s.
BTN and SB are both semi-solid 2p2rs. They view you as a 2p2r and you have been squeezing from time to time.

my question is HOW often do you 3b here? almost 100%? This is the ideal situation to 3b from my experience that only comes up so often. What about 98o? what about 35o? I am just looking for percentages.

I call this lots. Pissing contests with other competent players at these levels seem silly imo

Call sometimes, raise others. Totally depends on recent history, the ranges of the two players in question, and how they react to squeezes from you.

Yeah, I'm with tagtastic. 3-bet when you got decent FE (pre or on the flop), just call otherwise. Totally dependent of how they play, history, what mood they're in, your image etc.

i think if im doing it with 98s a certain percent of the time then if the situation looks so juicy i'll do it 100%.

I really don't see how 98o and 35o are any different in this spot. They completely suck and you aren't three betting for value, you are just stealing with a squeeze. So, IMO, its pretty ridiculous to assign some arbitrary squeeze percentage differentiations for 35o as opposed to 98o. You are looking for a fold and thats the only issue. Don't kid yourself that 98o is far better than 35o in this spot. In any event, many MSNL players, (maybe you're included IDK, not trying to be insulting) don't really understand why we three bet and which opponents to 3bet. They just start 3 betting every villain with any decent A, like AJ, etc in position against them or out of the blinds. Thats just spewing chips. And, I'm not even saying this particular hand necessarily a bad spot to 3bet, but just that the nature of your question seems to indicate that you might not really understand when/why to 3bet.

sometimes they call and we have to see a flop. don't you think 98o is better to see a flop with than 35o?

i'd prob never 3bet it if the SB was really bad
both good players tho some but it depends on alot of stuff like tagtastic said.
