    Yeah, I feel like once I get into “defend” mode, it trickled into how I played the whole hand. Not just having a wider range because of the discount, but I became much more passive. check call. check call. check call.

    I’m now working on a strategy for 3-betting more preflop from the BB and check raising more after flops. And then, of course, just ditching marginal hands too in postflop spots.

    It’s a more complicated strategy because it involves developing a set of ranges that can play on 3 bets, check calls, and check raises, but I think it is going to end up making me a tougher big blind to play against.

    This will definitely be a future seminar topic too. Out of my own self-interest, but also because I suspect many players struggle with this spot.
