      Hello steedler,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      You can't really Call that profitable the raise there, I'd basically just fold. You will loose rather money in long run.

      Best regards.

      is it ok to call the .68 raise and not call the all in or should i just fold after the button raises?

      Yep, exactly that. When BU raises then it's rather a fold. For example if the BU would as well Call then your implied odds would be even somehow good, but after the raise you ain't getting any perfect one anymore.
