      Hello UTGDog,

      Preflop: Why do you Call in first place being OOP? How do you plan to play the hand profitable?

      As played
      Postflop: Why do you Check/Raise so small? I'd make it pot size which would be $0,80. :) But otherwise not much to do while couple of draws and even FH is now possible.

      Best Regards.

      Felt such a small raise 3-handed on the button from someone who normally doesnt raise often was a weak attempt at a steal. I felt my suited connectors were good enough to protect my blind with heads up. I also knew, that given the proper flop, BU is folding more than 4/5 of his possible hands before the river, and in the event he is ahead, will bet his hands mechanically and I could easily give up when I'm pressured. It was more of an attempt to see a cheap flop with my suited connectors and possibly turn into a bluff should the opportunity present itself, as he is folding often enough to turn a profit.
