      Hey Keoghh,

      You just posted a hand in the Midstack forum which means we are playing with a 4$ or 40 big blinds stack. Since you play 100bb, $10 stack , it is better for you to post in the Big Stack section which you can find here:
      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/forum/board.php?boardid=1387

      As for the hand; I severely dislike your preflop play. 85 is not the best hand to complete with as it contains too many gaps and requires almost near perfect postflop play to make a profit

      As you can see you get raised on the Turn in which you are in a precarious spot because not a lot of worse hands are raising you. You only beat 53s & 83s but CO is not limping a lot with those hands. More with A5/A8/33/A3s

      So I think against a 96/33, bet/calling is better. Mostly I am looking to call the River as well against this crazy guy

      Best regards,
      Gerv
