Three betting possible stealers in no-limit hold’em
In no-limit holdem poker then you will be on the button or the cut-off a fair percentage of the time when the player to your immediate right open raises. The probability is that your opponent is raising lighter than normal based on position however you need to have some sort of idea on what your opponents range is. When you know this then you can set about constructing a three betting range to combat that. If you opponent is raising really wide then you can re-raise with pockets pairs 88+ and most Broadway hands like KQ and even KJ and AT.
I like calling raises with lesser hands in an attempt to use the combination of my hand strength and my position to gain a post flop advantage. When you three bet then you should do so aggressively and confidently in poker. I think that there is a big difference between an aggressive three bet and a defensive three bet. Most people would say that a three bet is a three bet but that isn’t the case. What I am talking about here is the mindset that a player has before they three bet.
