      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($12.39)
      BB ($10)
      UTG ($9.98)
      CO ($8)
      BTN ($10.22)

      Dealt to Hero Q:spade: T:diamond:

      fold, CO raises to $0.25, fold, Hero calls $0.20, fold

      FLOP ($0.60) 6:diamond: A:diamond: T:heart:

      Hero checks, CO bets $0.40, Hero calls $0.40

      TURN ($1.40) 6:diamond: A:diamond: T:heart: 7:spade:

      Hero bets $1, CO raises to $2.20, Hero folds

      CO wins $3.23

      He steals wide even in CO, guess I have to defend with this hand.

      Not sure about turn. I don't have too strong hand, and he likes raise donkbets, so maybe I had to just go for pot control instead of protection and check. He stops cbeting on turn often, so I could know I am beat if he 2nd barrels.

      Hello SPeedFANat1c,

      I wouldn't say that 46 is like very often. :D Regular is about ~50-60 for such stats. So it's not that often. It's not gonna be easy to play such hands, especially if you don't have a great plan against him. Your lines also seem to be exploitable as far I see from your play right now. Saw few hands with him and you always took the same line. But overall the play is considerable but against those high WTSD opponents I wouldn't play such hands, especially when he steals from CO only 28% and you said it's wide:

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    57.76%  55.58%   2.18% { 55+, A2s+, K5s+, Q7s+, J8s+, T8s+, 98s, A7o+, K9o+, Q9o+, J9o+ }
      UTG+1  42.24%  40.05%   2.18% { QTo }

      So we have to be really good postflop. :)

      Best Regards.
