      PokerStars - €0.02 NL (9 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: €1.77
      SB: €2.11
      Hero (BB): €2.13
      UTG: €2.22
      CO: €2.31

      SB posts SB €0.01, Hero posts BB €0.02

      Pre Flop: (€0.03) Hero has 5:diamond: 4:club:

      fold, fold, fold, SB calls €0.01, Hero raises to €0.08, fold

      Hero wins €0.04


      Opencompleting is something I find an extremely weak move. When I have a hand that plays nicely postflop like 87s, I will check here because I'm probably going to the flop with a better hand than my opponent.

      But when I hold a trash hand like 54o, I like to raise here preflop which very often lets me pick up his big blind. If I get called I just give up the hand unless I hit 2 pair or something.

      Hi, BaggerSmurf.

      I agree with you and do it myself with a wide range.

      I wouldn't give up unless I hit two pairs; in fact, I would cbet most flops if my opponent checks (and even raise if he bets).

      Just keep an eye on him: if he never folds preflop NOR the flop then it might be worth reconsidering the strategy :D
