      Hey veriz,

      Villain:
      31/10/74h
      Foldtocbet: 1/2.

      Can I complete? I actually don't really know completing is good or bad... Should we always try to fold or raise?

      And let's say we have a hand like TJo here, what should we do?

      Is the playstyle of BB important here?

      Hello Farmarchist,

      Yeah, the hand plays well in multiway pots. Even sometimes I raise it up dependent on the opponents. :) Even JTo can be completed, it's very small amount of money and we are against a fish, if we hit big time we can get paid and didn't even invest much. Even if we hit our pair we could be just taking down the pot by leading out.

      But otherwise kinda close while not even having any backdoors, it's going to be difficult to bet 2streets for value while we have bottom pair. Also a lot of hands continue on the flop, therefore leading ain't a good option. But if I'd lay down for the 1bb it's the question. :D Most likely it's going to be safer cause we wont be able to Call many cards on the turn anyways.

      If BB is aggressive then of course we rather have to isolate rather than complete.

      Best Regards.
