I AGREE

From ANIMAL187 9 day ago
about A bluffer's guide to poker jargon


I suppose 'standard' things like 3-bet sizing are only relevent to regs, which the villain certainly wasn't (at least in £3ks).

I suppose the 3-bet sizing in this example isn't particularly useful in narrowing his range, although I guess I would expect him to make it a bit bigger with 3 people already showing interest in the pot. With such deep stacks (starting stack is 200bb) I would expect 4x or maybe more in this situation, but as I explained in the article live players have very variable sizing in such spots.
