      BB's stats: Vp/PF/3bet/hands 13/9/0.0/46

      As much as I can imagine my preflop call not to be the worst, I am not too sure about my flop raise. At the time I thought it might be a good idea because his Cbetting range on the flop is wide and it was a 1BB Cbet which looked weak, but then again his stats suggest fishiness which is why I probably overcomplicated things where it was completely unnecessary.

      1) What do you think about the preflop call?
      2) Do you agree that the raise on the flop is bad?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Only problem in the hand is that CO ain't fully stacked. Against full stack if would be an easy Call but overall even against that stack it ain't a huge mistake. But what people usually do that they start to overplay their TP vs such a stack and that might be sometimes better if you just play QJs ones which can also hit the FD.

      But otherwise seems to be fine, especially if he has such a min-bet on the flop which may easily indicate to weakness. Make also a note.

      Best Regards.
