      Here I tried to steal the blinds with A6o (maybe this is already bad?) then I tried to c-bet the flop, as hero fold to c-bet was 80% (5).

      Then I folded when he bet the turn.

      Player9 ( $1.88 USD ) - VPIP: 58, PFR: 19, 3B: 14, AF: 2.7, Hands: 31


      $0.03/$0.06 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players


      MP: $6.14 (102.3 bb)
      CO: $7.21 (120.2 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $5.31 (88.5 bb)
      SB: $8.14 (135.7 bb)
      BB: $1.88 (31.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A:heart: 6:club:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.18, SB folds, BB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.39) Q:spade: 3:club: 4:diamond: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.29, BB calls $0.29

      Turn: ($0.97) 7:club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.72, Hero folds

      Results: $0.97 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: Q:spade: 3:club: 4:diamond: 7:club:
      Hero mucked A:heart: 6:club: and lost (-$0.47 net)
      BB mucked and won $0.93 ($0.46 net)

      Hey,

      Stealing with A6o is fine if blinds are tight/being able to fold. A 58/19 player would be calling you a lot and it is hard to play postflop with this hand. I would simply fold preflop. If I have a loose player on blinds, I open tighter range with nice postflop playability.

      Post flop is well played imo.

      + 1

      If you cbet, I would cbet just 1/2 PSB instead of 2/3 PSB.

      If you have more hands on villain, and you know that folds a lot to cbets then you can open a lot and take it down with a cbet. There are enough fish that like to see the flop and then play fit/fold.

      THis is a good framework to start out with stealing. A6o particularly is not a good hand, you rather want to have KJ even tho equitywise it is doing worse than A6. The fact that you dominate a lot with KJ versus a loose players range is making it up. With A6, you rarely dominate + you sometimes split if the othe board cards of Axx are higher than 6

      Like ATT82 = a split with A6 vs A4

      Best regards,
