      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has J:club: J:heart:

      fold, fold, MP calls $0.05, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.20, fold, Hero raises to $0.67, fold, BTN raises to $3.30 and is all-in, Hero calls $2.63

      Is it okay to call here against a shove from a midstack who opened from late pos?

      Hello StraGus,

      Well, would be good to know the stats here. But of course if he opens rather looser and against his stack I don't mind to go broke. Unless he really has rather tighter stealing range then we might able to fold or even not 3bet at all.

      Usually in those spots when I 3bet against that kind of stack then I also plan to play for the stacks.

      Best Regards.
