      Play hand

      $0.01/$0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 6, A.
      2 folds, BU raises to $0.06, 2 folds, BB folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.03.

      Even though the SHC says raise, I think this is a fold. The BTN is 39 26 with a 3 bet of 26 (50 hands). The SB is 33 8 and 3 bet of 4. The BTN is 14 8 and a 3 bet of 5. I think with the BTN and SB, I am putting myself in a -EV situation to raise when it is costing me nothing to just leave the pot with a marginal hand.

      Hello hackbinder,

      If you have such a maniac on the button then we definitely have to tighten up our range. Most likely A6 wont be that good and rather fold the hand. Our plan is either to tighten up and wait for a hand or just switch the tables/seat where we have position on him.

      Best Regards.
