What % should villain have in order for me to resteal?(Talking about 3bet-shove)
If a villain has a Steal % of 20+, I resteal with Ax and Kxs type hands and if he has 30+, I throw in some small pp and suited connectors.
Is that ok? What do you think?

Be very wary of one dimensional reads. Aware players, which are required in this circumstance, are not successful if one dimensional.

Hi Espada_Nu.4

It depends if we're shoving for value or not.
20% isn't a high steal percentage and I wouldn't be looking to shove on a guy like this without hands that play well against his range because I would expect to get called a lot.

There is so much to take into account when we 3bet all in, so much so that I think it's impossible to create a range/chart based on someones steal percentage alone. There are many more factors to take into consideration.

Are the players left to act tight? Weak and passive? If so then villains opening range ought to increase 'if he's smart'. Are the players behind you very aggressive? Do they 3bet often? If this is the case then villains range ought to be tighter than usual, meaning our range ought to be tight in this scenario because it's quite likely he's going to have a hand good enough to call us with.

Although knowing someones steal percentage is great and in most cases it will have a big influence on the decision we are going to make, we can't always rely on it to give us the magical answer of what hands we ought to be shoving against them, all we can do is use it as a tool to guide us in the right direction.

Anyway in regards to your actual question.
'If a villain has a Steal % of 20+, I resteal with Ax and Kxs type hands and if he has 30+, I throw in some small pp and suited connectors.
Is that ok? What do you think'

I hope now that you realize that this question is near enough impossible to answer but yes, your range seems ok.

Cheers, Chris.
