In this poker strategy article we discuss why you should 3-bet more in a poker cash game. I don’t mean you specifically, but then again, this probably does apply to you specifically. Most newer players commit the micro-stakes mistake of entering too many pots by calling and not enough by 3-Betting.
Most of the time, your 3bet bluff range should be the top of your folding range, with enough combo to balance your 3betting range (making his 4bet bluffs breakeven).
We 4-bet bluff the best of what’s left, favouring blockers. Holding an ace and a queen reduces our opponent’s nutted combinations and maximizes our fold equity against his 3-betting range. In reality, a microstakes population may be very tight with respect to their 3-betting against this position.
It is called 3-Bet as the first bet is the big blind, the second bet is the initial raise, and the third bet is your re-raise. A 3-Bet bluff refers to 3-betting with hands that you normally wouldn’t re-raise with, with the aim to take down the pot before seeing a flop.
This is a discussion on 3-bet range within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; I noticed that in micro MTTs nearly ever player has an absurdly low fold to 3-bet percentage.
Remember our criteria for a good bluff-catcher: (1) able to beat all of the hands he could be bluffing with; (2) blocks some portion of the opponent’s value betting range; (3) possibly even ahead of a thin value bet.
Triple Barrel Bluffs. PODCAST EPISODE 078. 38. 0.. Another way of phrasing it is how many bluffs are in your betting range. If you don’t have many bluffs then you should be making a smaller bet size, if you have a lot of hands you want to bluff then you make a bigger bet size, for example your opponent make a 10% pot size bet on the river.
If you ever have trouble choosing which hands to 4-bet bluff with, think through these steps: Step 1) Determine your 4-bet value range in a given situation. Step 2) Calculate (or just estimate)your 3-bet calling range. Step 3) Choose the best bluffing hands just outside of that calling range, usually Ax and suited connectors, 4-bet bluffs.
The 3-Bet defending strategy and the example hands in this article were actually taken from a sample chapter in my brand new poker book - The Micro Stakes Playbook.

Generally speaking, people have to continue with 40-50% of their opening range.
These days 3-betting light before the flop is an absolutely standard play and at higher stakes there is hardly a round played without somebody 3- or 4-betting. 3-Betting As a Bluff 3-betting a hand you would otherwise fold is a great way to create a new source of profit and increase your winrate.
If you always c-bet, then the range opponents put you on is exactly the same as your pre-flop 3-bet range and a big ace is going to feature in that at least as often as a big pair. Because opponent can put you on a range of hands, his response is going to be variable and he may already be planning ahead for the turn.
Somewhat surprisingly, our range of playable hands after his 3-bet is almost as large as his 3- betting range! This seems surprising at first but makes complete sense. Imagine a pot-limit game with stack sizes that are enormous compared to the initial bets, and two players who keep raising each other.
