      Hey Germany5590

      I think the Preflop raise is fine but when you get reraised the call is pretty mediocre (of $1.3) because you cannot setmine profitably there. Since effective stacks are 100bb, you will miss it too often to get it in profitably.

      Now when BTN backraises I would shove or fold. You can play for your pair value as I think BTN would not be slowplaying JJ+,AK preflop.

      Mind you that this is the MidStack section & you play Bigstack so posting in the relevant section next time is appreciated :) !

      One question: Why do you play out of position the whole time against a player you think is good? If he puts you in tough spots, doesn't make sense to play on another table?

      It was Zoom so I cannot really choose. I played him in that spot, because I thought that he was reraising the guy with air who was 3-betting like every pot we got in. hence i thought if i see a flop that kind of doesn't hit his 3-betting range in this particular scenario it will be easier to 3-bet on the flop

      So what kind of flops are you going to get it in? He is going to put a lot of pressure on you as his range can be anything but your range is more defined
