      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3:
      $8.67
      CO:
      $1.35
      BU (Hero):
      $4.22
      SB:
      $14.28
      BB:
      $8.05
      UTG2:
      $2.00
      MP1:
      $7.05
      MP2:
      $5.93


      Preflop: Hero is BU with K, Q.
      4 folds, CO calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.45, 2 folds, CO calls $0.35.

      Flop: ($1.05) 9, T, 3 (2 players)
      CO bets $0.90(All-In), Hero calls $0.90.

      Final Pot: $2.85.

      Finally I call. I thought I had a lot of equity here with OESD + overcards and getting a bit better than 2:1

      AS with all these hands I would like to be able to put Villian on a range. I am simply lost with this play. Please note that in 1 session of less than 100 hands the same villian played 3 hands against me the same way.

      All three times he limp call CO then openship or PSB the flop.

      I need a defence.

      Here you can just raise to $1.4 or shove preflop, thats your only defense

      On this Flop you can hero call but it is never +EV longterm because of the pot odds in my opinion relating back to his range. against 87, you still have to dodge a lot of cards etc.

      "Here you can just raise to $1.4 or shove preflop"

      I am on the Button wit 42 BB in an unraised pot with 1 limper? Surely I dont need to raise 14BB or ship 42BB.

      On the flop:
      again I put him on:
      22-77, 9x, Tx, OESD, FD

      Against this range I either have 10 outs or I am slightly ahead.
      I am getting more than 2:1 meaning that I need like 33% equity.

      I thought I had more than that.

      If I am wrong please advise

      You cant put a range on him because he limp/call and shoves any flop (3 out of 3 sample) so what you are doing is plainly a waste of effort if you think about it ..

      And you have to think outside the box concerning preflop play because in my eyes it is maxEV against this type of player to prevent yourself making mistakes causing you to burn money

      I am not going to put it all on a plate for you so you have to think / make some effort yourself
