      Hello shivas80,

      Preflop: Actually I am not really big fan of raising such a hand from CO, since the people in NL2 are just Calling like with any2. Therefore I'd rather make the steal when I really know that they are also capable of folding their blind and so does BU.

      As played
      Postflop: Betting the turn is kinda reasonable, since we make sometimes to fold hands like Kx plus, we also got some extra equity against him with our OESD, therefore I don't mind such a play. But I wouldn't take as a habit to play always this way our hand against unknown.

      Best regards.
