      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($4.91)
      BB ($4.85)
      UTG ($6.24)
      CO ($1.59)
      BTN ($3.04)

      Dealt to Hero 9:heart: 9:spade:

      fold, CO raises to $0.08, fold, Hero raises to $0.26, fold, CO raises to $0.44, fold

      CO wins $0.56

      54/24/1.4 steal is 38, hand count 73

      I could call his initial raise for set value, but I decided to 3bet because he is loose so I can get value.

      Now what his min 4bet could mean? I think AK or JJ+. His stack is 1.59 so if we are allin pot is 3.18
      I have invested 0.26 so I will invest 1.59-0.26 = 1.33 to win 3.18 pot, which is I need 42% equity.

      Agaisnt Ak,JJ+ I have 33% equity. So the fold is better.

      So I calculated everything, just need to confirm I calculated correctly :)

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      Preflop: Since he has such a small stack you have either to ask yourself, do you want to go broke against such an opponent? Or more often play postflop against him, if you decide to raise him then you likely have to go broke since he has such a small stack, often I tend to Call against smaller ones and give villains behind me odds for a Call.

      Yes your calculations are right. And yes fold is often better but that's what I explained before, just Call and play for set if you don't want to go broke. :)

      Best regards.
