Hi Stedds,

Position isn't great here, if the table is allowing it then opening up is fine, I know prem league can have alot of nits in there. But I think you have to be willing to fold once someone 3bets. If your read on the table as nits is correct then they cannot be 3betting light. If they are 3 betting light they can't be nits and you shouldn't be opening from this position with so many short 3bet shoving stacks behind us. We have to stick with our reads.

This particular hand you really aren't getting a good price to see the flop. It may look like it but he doesn't have that much left behind, after putting in 1/3rd of his stack he won't be folding much and his 3bet range would be well ahead of KTs.

After calling to see the flop we would absolutely have to stack off with any pair.
