      MP3 = 13/10/3.5/33 in 83 hands
      CO = 29/17/1.9/32 in 50 hands

      I have something like "call 15" in this hand and a cold caller pre flop. Is it profitable to call for set mining in this situation?

      thanks! :tongue:

      If BB is so passive not to raise, 4 waypot is promised.
      if so I think set mine will pay off.

      Hey,

      Do you also call preflop with AK? with AA? KQs? 87s?

      You need to balance your preflop range here because people are starting to notice what you are doing. Since MP is a reg, I would assume he is not completely braindead hence at some point he notices you are only setmining

      That said I prefer more the squeeze line because that way we can represent AK, we can represent AA but also 87s/66 at some point

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Very nice! After what you said about the other 66 I think this would be a great spot to squeeze, mainly cause of the reg MP which I think will fold a lot. The other hand I wouldn't be confortable squeezing 2 loose opponents but in this spot I think it's really the better option.

      tyvm ;)

      You just have to make sure you are not getting multiway in a squeezed pot. So against 2 loose opponents you can make it as big as necessary to get HU or force them to fold preflop
