      SB: $10.35 - VPIP: 4, PFR: 4, 3B: 9, AF: 0,0, Hands: 23
      BB: $13.98 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 11, 3B: 17, AF: 0,0, Hands: 18

      Hero (BTN): $11.99 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 64253

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 2 :club: 2 :diamond:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.30, Hero calls $0.30, 1 fold, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.95) 7 :club: 3 :club: 7 :diamond: (3 players)
      BB checks, CO checks, Hero bets $0.53, BB folds, CO folds

      Since this would be a standard spot to bet with a hand like 66 or 88, why not 22? Should be fine.

      Hi Avatars91,

      I like the bet here since we should have enough FE here with any 2. The reg is usually giving up and BB is as well going to usually x/fold on paired board.

      Also you should realize that 22 is quite the worst hand you could bet and if you bet this you bet your entire range. This is because with hand like A9 you still have overcards when you are called and can improve while with 22 your chances of improving are very slim.

      I am very interested in whether Veriz agrees with both of your points:

      Hello Avatars91,

      We can't always say that we are betting entire range, mainly depends also on the opponents we are against. If we assume BB range being towards mainly PPs then we wont have tons of fold equity here and instead Check it behind. Though we can assume that CO is giving up here and whilst we are against unknown betting is pretty standard cause we can easily improve our hand with overs or either have the fold equity.

      Best Regards.
