      Hey!

      I ignore the call 20 rule and call even if I haven't got 20x the raise.
      He c-bets on the rainbow flop with A high as a scare card. I raise to 38c which is possibly too much? Should I have called the c-bet instead? Folded pf?

      Thanks,

      - Gnill

      Hey,

      You have a 50bb stack which means you are playing the Midstack strategy. Therefore we do not call preflop as you are mostly acquainted to it if you play with 100bb thus a bigger stack. The sole reason is that mathematically we do not make money when calling preflop for pure setmining because we only can win 50bb from our opponents

      If I want to play this hand as a midstack, I 3bet my openraiser. Otherwise I just fold

      Best regards,
      Gerv
