every time i opened when this villain was in the bb they would always 3bet me, every time i folded, folded better hands than this, but decided this time i had enough...

should i just let them continually boss me around, should i fold my btns and select a tighter range,

since i hit the flop, i pretty much thought i was ahead of their entire range...

Hi bonez

There's only so much folding to 3bets a man can make, especially if it's from one player in particular.

If villain is frequently 3betting your button raises we can fight back by either flatting or 4betting. I like to fight back by calling with hands that play well postflop hands like 910s/QJs/K10s and I like to 4bet our stronger hands like A10+.and small/medium pairs that I don't want to get flatted with. We can also 4bet the suited connectors. Ultimately I want to 4bet jam hands that are likely to have a reasonable amount of equity if we are called. If we're too deep to 4bet jam then I like flatting with the speculative type hands.

With these stack depths I would often 4bet shove rather than call. Our stack to pot ratio is small which doesn't give us a lot of room to maneuver post flop.

Post flop is ok as long as you're never folding to villains turn bet. Having committed half of your stack to the hand it would be a huge mistake to fold on the turn. We could raise all in on the flop but if we have a strong read that he has nothing then calling is fine. Got to give them that rope to hang themselves.

Cheers, Chris.
