  • Can I call this 3-bet preflop?

    It's $11 Phase event with multiple Day 1 and Day 2 being the final day. On Day 1 it's very weird structure unlike normal games where you play Day 1 for 7-8 hrs, in this game you need to play 2 hour 20 mins and Day 1 is over. Now on Day 2 you return to play until the winner which I think will be 4-5 hours. It has 10 mins blind level. So only 14 levels on Day 1.

    There are few players who over-called the 3-bet, so I might have decent odds to call (1:4.42) I am not sure if its enough. But we all are deep stacked.

    But does this hand fit into 3-bet cold-calling range, coz this hand has terrible reverse implied odds.

    We are counting to make flush or make two pair or trips on the flop. If we flop one pair we will never know if it's good or not.

    Taking all this into account should I still make the call as price is good?

    Definately peeling at this stack depth and the price we are getting.

      Hi adi,

      I 100% agree, on this depth of money with a hand that plays well multi-way and closing the action, I would call. I don't feel concerned with reverse implied odds here in a 4 way pot, because I'm not going to lose my mind when I flop top pair.
