      If he steals that much then 0,22 is fine since he will fold a lot more then his overall f23bet.
      You'd better look at the fold2resteal stat (if you have enough samples). If he doesnt fold a lot to resteals then you're better of raising 0,26 for value.

      This flop is perfect for a 1/2 PSB cbet cause it hits our range hard (not that he understands that though)

      then c/f turn unimproved

      Hey wxmwoaili,

      It's possible his fold to resteal will increase with bigger sample size as T suggested, but if it doesn't and your problem are his loose steals and loose 3-bet calls then just 3-bet 88 to 0.26$ and shove any flop.

      As played, as T said, half potsized c-bet on the flop should do the trick and I am done with the hand if villain doesn't fold.

      Best regards,
