      Hello wnbMG,

      Nah, don't like it that much. Especially against a loose opponent. Of course you have some kind of reads on him but I'd rather not turn my hand into bluff and rather 2nd barrel and protect my hand. :)

      Best Regards.

      With such a loose opponent on the BTN isn't it worth it for us to tighten up our CO open range a bit? Seems to me Q8s is a tiny bit too loose to open and play more than 1/2 the pots out of position (mind that if his VPIP is 41% it's probably that he is playing even more than that in the button), so we will be often in these tough spots needlessly.

      Rather, if you open a tight range you'll crush him (especially if he likes to call that flop with random overcards there :D ).
