      MP2 raises to $0,17, MP3 folds, Hero calls $0,17, 3 folds.

      Hello Smashie,

      Preflop: Once again it's the hand where I should consider if we can play such a hand profitable with just Calling pretflop against that opponent on who we don't have stats even. But it's doable.
      Flop: I'd prefer to take pot control line since with just Raising we turn our hand into bluff since we aren't ready to go broke, just go for pot control and if he is bluffing then maybe he even able to continue it on turn and we still get value from him. Not that drawy board to be scared of.

      Best regards.
