I was watching a David Chan video (CLP #137 from LATB in 2014) and he made a comment in a hand that seemed strange to me.
$5-10, $1.9K effective
3 limps to David who raises button with AQo. SB just calls with TT. David says he likes the flat call because it’s hard for TT to get called by worse as a 3bet, and also because TT doesn’t mind rec limpers coming along multi-way.
I would have thought this was a mandatory 3bet to steal the dead money and hopefully keep the hand heads up or even take the pot down vs potentially wide BTN open when we will have to play a vulnerable hand OOP. Am I missing something here?
BTW, I’ve posted this before, but despite being dated, David Chan’s CLP videos are generally masterful in providing great analysis and strategy tips. I highly recommend them.
