      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with K :heart: 8 :club:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 1 fold, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) T :diamond: 8 :diamond: 3 :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.30, Hero calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1.25) 7 :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.70, Hero folds

      1) Given the two loose players in the blinds + SB being a shortstack is this preflop raise not just a little bit ambitious? Should be close.

      2) Would you agree with a raise here on the flop? Villain probably bets the turn very often anyway and there are a lot of cards we don't want to see. Shouldn't really be a good call. And I also feel that logic-wise I should be prepared to bet again on the turn on many turn cards if I raise the flop here. Not diamond turn cards though.

      I quess the preflop steal raise is pretty std, but because of the loose blinds you should expect to be called pretty often. But like you said, it's quite close. I might fold this w/o any additional reads.

      Why BB donks the flop? Because of that (s)he most probably doesn't have trips or two pairs, otherwise c/r would be expected. Would (s)he bet with a draw? Maybe a smallish reraise would be ok. Then bet turn, check river (if no 8 or K).

      EDIT: As played, I'd fold to turn be also.

      I think that we cannot really exclude these hands. Especially since this is still the kind of a board on which people often just check behind.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Rather play it way ahead/behind than waste more money into the pot. With his FD he still has decent equity cause most likely he will also have some overcards with it. So seems to be well played!

      Best Regards.

      Preflop openraise = ok?

      As long I don't comment it should be fine. :)
