    Default range in BB against SB 3bet vs. button steal

    hi everybody!

    btn: no reads - only 17hands - nothing out of line till now...
    SB: also very few hands, but marked as TAG from a lower limit so i assume a top 20% 3b range

    $2/$4 (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
    Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

    UTG: $65.15
    CO: $55.70
    BTN: $175.50
    SB: $141.65
    Hero (BB): $110.75

    SB posts SB $1.00, Hero posts BB $2.00

    Pre Flop: ($3.00) Hero has Q J

    fold, fold, BTN raises to $4.00, SB raises to $6.00, Hero ???

    how should i aproach this spot?
    - capping range?
    - do we ever coldcall 2 bets here? or is it cap or fold?

    is there maybe a video somewhere which covers this spot?

    looking forward to your replies

    thx a lot!

    Hey Grisu.

    My immediate thought was that it doesnít really matter, followed by an immediate change of mind that Iíd fold here.

    For me, the crux of the matter is that we basically have no extra information to work with (walking into a game with no reads, no history, no game dynamic) and playing this hand out forever, I think folding is correct. The little things pretty much sway the closer decisions. With this very same lack of info, Iíd be capping AQo+. The SBís 3b range is of particular concern (is it really a full 20%?).

    Coldcalling isnít really a strong point of mine. While I do it, Iím completely unbalanced when I do and itís probably a leak. GB released a good vid on the subject. While it doesnít cover this exact situation, this doesnít seem to meet his criteria for coldcalling. Basically, it looks like we are trying to squeeze equity out of a pretty marginal situation. It would be great to get his input.

    I too look forward to replies.
