      River: ($1.86) 6:heart: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $1.86

      normal bet in sb. on flop raised to mid pair. I thought that the VPIP of MP2 is higher. Hence he is raising with average hands. Was my reason good? if not how should i reason with the stats here?

      Hi,


      its bet/fold on the flop. Your 2nd pair will not do and you have 2 outs to improve to set.
      and you have 2 hands on MP2 so that is no sample at all...

      This.

      You play with 45 big blinds and with such a big stack going all-in with second pair will too often be a too costly mistake as you have barely any equity if villain has a top pair and he will rarely go broke with less than that for the given stack size.

      As for your stats question, you need much more hands on the players you are playing against in order to get any useful information about their postflop stats. But if you would like to know which stats one could use in given situation, it's mostly aggression factor, fold to c-bet, raise to c-bet and went to showdown. But know that those stats become useful not before 500 hands samplesize.
