      fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.08, fold, fold, fold, BB raises to $0.28, Hero raises to $0.74 (AI), BB calls $0.46
      I would like like a real hard-core nit to anyone with a HUD, so I was surprised at the re-reraise.

      The chart says to push here -- and I did, but it felt like way overplaying.
      If you assume that the BB has the standard resteal range, I'm ahead of It, so I suppose it is OK. Feels real spewy though.

      What about TT, 99 & even 88?
      Equity is above break-even for those hands too, but chart says to fold if re-raised.


      FLOP ($1.49) 8:club: T:club: 2:heart:

      TURN ($1.49) 8:club: T:club: 2:heart: T:spade:

      RIVER ($1.49) 8:club: T:club: 2:heart: T:spade: 8:heart:

      Hero shows J:diamond: J:heart:
      (Pre 81%, Flop 85.8%, Turn 95.5%)

      BB shows 7:club: 7:diamond:
      (Pre 19%, Flop 14.2%, Turn 4.5%)

      Hero wins $1.42

      Hello,

      is someone in the late position sit out? If not you are sitting in middle position and the chart says to bet/fold. But you know better :)

      The chart is designed to play against an average unknown player. If you know the opponent, you can deviate from the chart (but I recommend not too much). If a monster nit sits behind you who 3-bets like never in large sample size, you can fold your JJ to his reraise even though chart says push, because you are behind most of the time.

      that's correct :)

      you have to adapt against the player and it depends a little bit how much you are openraising by yourself

      i can't fold JJ in mp3 and you see, this player seems to be a looser one
