      I think the gambler inside me was playing this hand!

      I called the raise, just because there was already a call in front of me, and I thought there might be another behind. I'm not sure exactly when I decided I could called raised pots with suited connectors, is this okay for MSS? (or at all?)

      I have been playing fairly tight until then, so somehow I saw this as a good oppotunity for a bluff.

      Only 17 hands on villian, but seemed fishy (not that that helps too much...) VPIP 59 PFR 6

      Even as a BSS player playing this hand is pretty bad and requires superior postflop skills (you need near-perfect play to grind 2bb in EV which is not much if you have a 100bb stack with a high chance of making losing plays)

      in MSS this is definitely a losing play, I dont even squeeze 3bet this because you just dont hit any equity often enough

      Best regards,
