      Could this be the reason why MSS raising chart cuts off at 77? I just seem to be having trouble with mid pairs in all positions and this is another example. and unlike my last post of 6's this was a fold to a donk bet ace high on the turn. Should I have called. IMO the villian was a maniac so it was hard to put him on a range of cards 74/54 so i'm guessing the fold was correct.. question was PF play with 6's on BU

      Hey sokoi,

      It's best to just stick to the SHC until you get some more experience. Low-mid PPs are very hard to play postflop, that's also why there aren't so many in the SHC.

      As played, you should definitely c-bet this flop otherwise you invite him to push you off the hand.

      Best regards,
