      villain is 18/6 over 52hands.

      I think I might be having a leak here because it's not 1st time I confront situations like that.

      turn card changes absolutely nothing, it's like calling with a hope he goes passive on this turn.


      I think I should fold the flop raise here, right ?

      Hello SneakyhanD,

      Preflop: 4bb raise from UTG.
      Postflop: Bet/Fold it or go broke cause you don't have the implied odds to Call and most likely you are against a stronger hand there. You will rarely even know where you stand if you hit your flush.

      Best Regards.

      I actually began to 3x preflop on nl5, ALWAYS.

      Is that bad ?

      Why would you do that if you have only strong range on the UTG?

      but there are also worse Ax in his range which want to protect from FD? can we shove on the flop vs this mid stack?

      Taken into account that he is a mid-stack then yes, we can do that. Bet/Shove over Bet/Call. Cause calling wouldn't really make sense while we could already have the best hand and he is betting the turn anyways nor if we get paid.
