      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $10.08 (100.8 bb)
      SB: $11.99 (119.9 bb)
      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb)
      UTG: $14.33 (143.3 bb)
      MP: $18.51 (185.1 bb)
      CO: $58.42 (584.2 bb)

      SB 24/18/3.1.7.5/23/228hands

      I usually call fairly wide BB vs SB since people give up so much OOP at NL10
      But anyway my question is about postflop.
      Any point in raising flop? I wanted to protect from over cards & FDs, or is it ok to just flat IP?
      When he shoves i dont think my equity is that great against overpairs whichis probably most of his range.


      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7:diamond: 5:spade:
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.40, Hero calls $0.30

      Flop: ($0.80) 6:club: 4:diamond: 5:club: (2 players)
      SB bets $0.60, Hero raises to $1.75, SB raises to $11.59 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Results: $4.30 pot ($0.19 rake)
      Final Board: 6:club: 4:diamond: 5:club:
      SB mucked and won $4.11 ($1.96 net)
      Hero mucked 7:diamond: 5:spade: and lost (-$2.15 net)

      First at all, I'd say calling 75o "because his opening range is wide" is a big mistake - at least at the current level. Even if his range is wide, its's crushing your 75o. SC would be good to call, but such a trash should be easy folded - you don't have to fight for every pot. Sometimes you can mix some bluff 3bets, but I'd better like a hand with some blockers - like A2o. So, first at all it is easy fold preflop.

      O the flop, you don't have to think if it is your equity good against overpairs. You can calculate it.

      Board: 6c4d5c

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 42.47% 41.52% 0.96% 7d5s
      MP3 57.53% 56.57% 0.96% 88+

      You need to call 7,85$ to win 12,15$ (hope, no miscalculation there), so you need to have at 40% it to be profitable. Add rake - add it is a 50/50 decision. Add some flush draws to his range, and it is more likelely to be a call.

      Another question - if you're raising flop, you already have to know what you will do if he shoves. And if you're planning to fold against his shove, I'd better stay with calling the flop in position.

      Hi,

      calling 4bb raise is likely not profitable unless you´re going to make a lot of moves postflop and outplaying your opponent. Once you raise flop you can´t fold, since you have too much equity against overpairs. Hard to get board, where you have 45% equity against aces.
