      Hero wins $7.87

      first of all, i decided to flat call here since the guy had a steal in SB of 50% (BU 60% and BB 50%) (over 76 hands - not massive sample but to be stealing on 38 of those is a fair amount). his range must have been pretty wide even from such a small sample. i didn't want to reraise in case it isolates me against the strong end of his range so i thought i would just see a flop and assume he is stealing with a wide range.

      my question is, with hands like AT, AJ, AQ, KQ, KJ, KT and QJ, is it okay to 3bet in the blinds when facing a raise from BU/SB? and also is it okay to flat call like i did in this hand?

      anyway this is my homeowrk #5.

      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: Totally standard, our calling range is ahead vs his stealing range. I have no doubt that in long run we still can profitable it while we even have the position.
      Postflop: Although I would still raise a bit bigger, I mean if he even has a draw then you practically giving him very good odds for a draw. I'd rather do it ~$0,80. Since if he has a hand he is paying us anyways, if he doesn't he wont pay us much either.

      Best regards.

      hey thanks for the evaluation. whenever i raise with a hand i always raise to 3x their original bet.. is this completely wrong? if so, how much should it be when i am raising for value?

      Well, preflop obviously it's right but postflop:
      Pot size raise = Pot + 3x opp. raise. Which is even $1. :) Well, obviously your raise it ain't that big problem but for giving them worse implied odds I'd raise it a bit bigger. :)
