Strategies on how to play 3 on 3 tourneys

I am starting a 3 man team playing panam unlimited paint. I would like to know how to setup, 2 back guy's and 1 front or 2 fronts and one back. How do you setup your team on the field?
I just need general information on how to play this format.

Not too many peeps in here play that many 3-mans, it'd be a better idea to ask in PB Talk or something. But we used to run 2 backs 1 front. Cross up, send that front guy to stab fools.

It really depends on the 3 people you are playing with. Playing 3man a few years ago, my old *** and another guy who looked like he swallowed a watermelon played the back corners and let our 3rd play up front. We picked up another younger guy and then switched up to me playing back and then 2 up front and we did much better. But it all depends on the skill and the characteristics of the guys you hook up to play with.

dont stick to one plan if you have players who are versatile enough to fill different positions. If even one of you can play as an insert player and do a little of everything you can change things from game to game and wreck people. If they know what youre gonna do every round, they might be able to pick a guy off the break and in 3 man thats a huge disadvantage so early in the game.

yeah its true. If you can weatch a team before you play them learn how they play and you will have a distinct advantage over them. On the other hand don't get stuck in a rut as far as playing styles go. If you use the same tactic every time your going to get caught and your not going to like it. Having three good mobile players is key. Practice different offensive and defensive tactics and have all your players learn the different positions well enough so if you need to fill one or change your style quick you can. Having three players that are set in their playing styles is dangerous because a back player will know how to shoot but if in a snap shoot contest with a front player he will be in serious trouble. The key to 3 man is communication and flexibility. You will never have more than a 2 man advantage so you always have to be able to move and talk.
