      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3: http://www.pokertracker.com

      UTG+1: $0.80
      MP: $1.84
      CO: $2.41
      Hero (BTN): $2.22
      SB: $1.61
      BB: $2.37
      UTG: $0.72

      SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero has K:heart: A:club:

      fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.06, MP calls $0.06, CO raises to $0.20, Hero ???

      UTG+1 is rather loose and passive post flop, so hard to push away from a hand. Wheras for CO, I had barely any read at the time of this hand (he appeared to be loose and aggressive after).

      I don't think a flat call is smart here despite position. On the other hand, a raise would place me with a very large pot and with opponents who showed aggression and who don't seem to be eager to be out of it. What should I do here?

      Hello dondiego2000,

      The idea of flatting is bad since we wont often enough get paid off by a weaker hand if we hit for example our Ace, we have to know that the opponent may still continue with his weaker PPs so in such situations where it's either fold or 4bet against unknown you can easily fold the hand preflop. As you said you got stats on him later on and he got stats of loose/aggressive opponent then you next time could easily 4bet against him if he does 3bet a lot.

      Best regards.
