It’s not always clear cut what to do when you raise first in and get 3-bet. How do you know when it is appropriate to flat, and when you can exploit your opponent with a 4-bet? The answers to these questions are crucial to your success on the felt, and raising without a plan for these contingencies can put you in some very tough spots.
Ryan Fee, co-founder of Upswing Poker, is here to break down this decision making process. First, he takes a look at how to handle this when raising in position, followed by a lesson on dealing with 3-bettors that have position on you. Parts of this lecture come straight form The Lab, including the RFI preflop tool.
