      Hello. Can I always call 0,5BB in spot like this? Problem is when I hit there's no-one to pay me off most of the time. Is it fine long-term? Thanks

      Well you mostly play against 1 opponent has BB has 80% of their bottom range so that is why you hardly get paid off with your 44s

      That is why I fold preflop vs 1 limper

      Happy new year!
