      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with 8 :club: K :diamond:
      2 folds, CO checks, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.50, 2 folds

      Can this not be a good steal given that CO has a random hand and BB has not really been that aggressive? Our hand can still hit. I decided to raise to 5BBs because we are OOP. Could even raise to a smaller amount?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Even if he has a dead-blind vs 100% your K8o isn't the best hand either to play, try out for example in equilab and see how you doing vs random range. Your equity will be very slightly ahead which means that we have to be good enough of understanding our postflop play to play such hands profitable, cause I assume we rarely going to have much fold equity just preflop.

      Also the factors that he ain't playing with full stack + us being OOP might rather be towards rather not isolating such hands cause we can't really say that we are doing it for value. But rather hoping that the guy folds either preflop or postflop enough.

      Doubt that raise size has any affect in the game here vs loose opponents.

      Best Regards.
