      Very loose guy open raised from the UTG and got 2 callers. I thought it was a good spot to squeeze. Everyone folds, except CO, who decided to push. I called because I think he mostly don't have QQ, KK or AA here and it would be a coin flip in a worst case.

      What do you think? Should I just call preflop? Should I fold on his push?

      CO's stats: 22/14/3,1/0,9/494 (VPIP/PFR/3b/Agg/Hands)

      Hello Alleen86,

      He could easily as well have JJ+ there, and I am not really big fan of taking such flips. Rather just call it and play for set value while we getting perfect odds and we will likely get paid more often and even in long run should be more profitable to play this way than get it in.

      Best regards.
