      I'm trying to defend blinds more. My current overall fold to steal is 60
      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      UTG+2: $1.86 (93 bb)
      MP1: $1.06 (53 bb)
      MP2: $1.62 (81 bb)
      MP3: $8.95 (447.5 bb)
      CO: $5.28 (264 bb) 22/18/6.7/3.5 (57) vpip/pfr/3bet/af (hands)
      BTN: $3.14 (157 bb)
      SB: $1.95 (97.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $2.45 (122.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J K
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.06, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.04
      at this point v has stolen 3 out of 3 chances. Flatted because didn't want the pot to get too large.

      Flop: ($0.13) 2 J K (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.09, Hero raises to $0.36, CO folds
      I c/r because villain v aggro. I thought if I lead out, he could easily re-raise and this way, I show greater strength.
      Does this line make sense?

      I think overall fold to steal 60 is a bit low - 70ish might be better imo. Because your playing too many pots oop and will get into trouble at higher limits. Obv depends on opponents it might be that your picking good spots against the stealer so against better players might naturally increase. (I play sh though so this might not apply to fr)

      As played nice hand imo! Don't think i'd play it any differently.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Kind of crappy board for us cause even vs pair+FD we have at the best a flip but of course we still need to protect our hand. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
