Default Full Tilt $163, 4-bet semibluff vs. Bartley

I'd been @ the same table as Aaron Bartley for about an hour. Right when he got to the table, I 3-bet him and he promptly 4-bet AI in a button/sb confrontation. So yea, I pretty much left him alone after that. He's been calling his fair share of raises, and 3-bet once or twice.

My image: I'd been playing fairly tight and I hadn't 3-bet anyone since that one time I 3-bet Bartley about an hour ago. I just won a medium sized pot w/ a preflop raise, followed by a flop c/r w/ KhJh on a Qxx two heart board.

UTG+1 is new to table. The coldcaller is pretty bad and calls raises somewhat loosely. I could see the coldcaller holding any pair, some of the better suited broadway hands, AJ+.

I don't play online, but What do you put the original raiser and Aaron Bartley on? I don't like this play at all due to risk/reward ratio. But it is online so you'll probably suck out even if you do get instacalled by AA.

I would fold. The raise was from early position and he reraised from CO. This is unlikely to be a squeeze play, and I think he has odds to call the push.

Just to clarify, I am to bartley's direct left. I am in the cutoff seat. Bartley is in the hijack. I did not open this pot.

While many players don't understand potodds, I still think that gambleAB isn't capable of making this play with an extremely wide range. Shane will be shoving on his 3-bet relatively frequently, and if confite shoves, he is getting good enough odds that he has to call. If both people were like 20k deep and he 3-bet to like 6k, a 4bet here would be more tempting.

But in reality, against any realistic range, he has to call this shove relatively wide just because of the odds he is given. I think plays like this are under-rated, and people need to use them more often, I just think that unless AB is 3betting a huge range(like all pairs etc), this can't be profitable.

beat me to it

anyway, I'm kinda mixed on the play, because Bartley is definitely capable of pulling a squeeze and he likes to be aggressive preflop. That said, any legit hand he does it with is always calling you (I mean, there's a chance he 3-bets something like TT or even JJ and folds to a cold 4-bet, but I don't think it's especially likely).

I dunno... it can't be that bad. We're probably about 30% vs. Bartley's calling range, sooooo... someone more math-inclined than me should do the math on how often he has to fold to make this profitable.

this is something I've noticed people ignoring a lot lately in the strat forum... yeah some people 3bet light from all sorts of positions, but the vast majority of people, even those who 3bet light, never do it from co, especially vs a raise and a call

I don't like the play. While Bartley 3bets a decent amount and this looks like a squeeze I think he cold calls with most hands we beat. He likes to take flops and play in position a lot (ok he likes to CC OOP a lot too) so if he had a worse hand I think he's taking a flop here.
