      I had the intention of going against BTN, who had a high 3bet percentage. A percentage of 25 %, which is really extraordinary But I totally forgot about MP1. Luckily, he was a fish. So it was my 55 against his QTs.

      Hi,

      problem is that he would most likely not squeeze/fold and it is hard him to have worse hand than yours. So to me it is better just to fold pf, rather than put in 66bb either coinfliping or having 20% equity.
      Also you have only put in 2bb that you can easily fold and wait 88+/AJ+ to stack his wide 3-bet range

      Hello nixnatasjanix,

      Add to full stack if you playing BSS. :)

      Also even if you want to raise it preflop then do it 4xBB not just min-raise. As you get squeezed you should just fold your hand, you will never play the hand very profitable going broke here. You might even not flip here. :P

      Best regards.
