      Hi Veriz,

      I'd like to hear (read) your thoughts on this hand:

      This is not a standard call for me pf, but once and a while I have to do something to prevent being exploited. His 3bet size was also fairly small.


      16/16 (74 hands)
      3bet from sb: 20% (10 situations)
      wtsd: 17
      c-bet flop: 60
      c-bet turn: 0 (only 1 situation...)

      When I called I was planning to raise a lot of his c-bets. Especially on low boards or connected boards.

      The only negative thing here is that I don't have equity when he calls. But since he has to give so many hands, I thought the raise on itself was profitable.

      While having no info on his postflop play I would either 4bet/fold or fold it preflop.

      As played I like your raise. Good board to do on, we have also some BD's.

      Hello darko163,

      Preflop: Without any information there is no point to Call vs rather assumed nitty player. We either 4bet/Fold it or just fold it directly. Will be rather difficult to play postflop without even decent equity hand.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment on such a dry board with backdoors we should also consider taking a stab if we calling 3bets.

      Best Regards.
