This week we're highlighting a common spot where you 3-bet preflop from the Button vs a Middle Position Open.
Against most opponents you will have a fairly high c-bet frequency in this spot and you can often size down your c-bets to 25% of the pot on static flops.
However, you can use larger c-bet sizing on dynamic boards with a more polarized range that consists of bluffs with blockers and vulnerable but high equity value hands.
Remember that missed draws are often good candidates to round out a bluffing range and provide overall balance to your aggressive lines.
You will often be put to tough decisions with marginal hands, with the correct decision often coming down to understanding the effects of blockers and the specific suits you hold.
To see more examples and test your skills, you can play through five solved hands from this exact scenario. To access the five (5) FREE hands, click here.
