      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      18/13/368h
      Openraise MP = 13%
      cbetflop = 4/7

      Std call preflop? I think we don't dominate a lot of hands in his range but the hand plays pretty good in position though. Don't really know it.
      How big should his openraiseMP% be to call those hands?

      Hey.
      I think a call is good here because we can put pressure on villain post flop with our position on many boards (raise / float). If the the button or the shorty in the blinds are good players we may fold it because we give them a very nice squeeze spot. I don't think his open raise % matters too (unless he is a super nit) much as we don't play for domination potential but for using our position to make profitable semi bluffs.

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Assuming that we also have bad players behind us then sure why not to play the hand but we also must understand how to play those hands postflop and how to exploit the villain and his leaks. Right now I don't really see any reasonable information which would me think that you are thinking of overplaying him.

      Best Regards.
