What are the advantages of using delayed bets? Should you be doing them only with premiums?

Example : mpg AA, raise, 3-bet CO, how good is here delaying the 4th-bet with the intention of putting in on the flop?

What is your range for delaying.

Thanks.

going by the recent live trainings the answer is it depends on if you think you will get called by worse or not.

If you four bet most will at least stop and think....

Quite solid response, +1.

If your villain simply cannot fold AK/QQ, then no sense in not 4betting him early to avoid a KKx or Qxx flop, and almost a sure loss; cause they definately ain't folding if they hit.

If he/she can fold those hands, even some of the time, then your risk is relatively minimal with AA (you'll be at least a 79% fav over everything), and the flop isn;t really changing that a ton versus a lesser pair, and will only change it drasticly if AK flops a strong draw.
