      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $92,7
      MP2:
      $57,2
      CO:
      $80

      0,25/0,5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.106 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      MP2 openraise = 26%
      Fto3B = 40%
      CO 3B = 18% (16% overall)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:club: , K:spade:
      MP2 raises to $1,75, MP3 folds, CO raises to $6,00, BU folds, Hero raises to $13,25, 2 folds, CO calls $7,25.

      This situation just looked like a loose raise followed by a loose 3B.
      What i didn't noticed, was that CO was so deep.
      Should i rather let this one go since i don't have invested much? Better than putting >150 bb in jeopardy.

      Flop: ($28,75) 9:club: , 6:club: , 5:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $15, CO raises to $66,75 (All-In), Hero calls $51,75.

      Final Pot: $162,25

      Hello chocular77,

      Preflop: Well, being deeper we might even have more fold equity here, so I wouldn't say it's super bad play. But of course also depends on the dynamics.

      As played
      Postflop: Not the best spot cause we are just getting it near break-even equity if we are against reasonable range. For example:

      Board: 9:club: 6:club: 5:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    64.11%  63.69%   0.41% { KK+, 99, 66-55, QdQc, QhQc, QsQc, JdJc, JhJc, JsJc, KcQc, KcJc, QcJc, QcTc, JcTc }
      UTG+1  35.89%  35.48%   0.41% { AcKs }

      but that might be even wide where we might want to exclude couple of PP combos which have the in it cause we are deep, so also would assume he could be rather playing them passively. But we need ~35% equity which makes it break-even and even worse if we exclude hands.

      Best Regards.

      So should i b/f or don't bet at all.
      If i bet less i could fold the hand more easily but my plan was that i bet enough so i have to call a ship from him.

      Well, then stick to your plan then. :) But before setting up a plan try to decide what kind of range you put the opponent on, don't evaluate only your play but also opponents play including us being deep.
