      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is BTN with 2 :club: K :club:
      5 folds

      I did not open the hand because we still have a rather small sample to state that BB is extremely tight and folds to steals very very often (although he does seem like that) + SB seems to be loose postflop + sometimes he can also show some aggression, however, can this still not be an open?

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    43.23%  42.04%   1.18% { K2s }
      MP3    56.77%  55.59%   1.18% { JJ-22, A2s+, K6s+, Q6s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, A2o+, K8o+, Q8o+, J9o+, T9o, 98o, 87o }

      We are not doing all that bad vs his potential calling range (of course, add some hands, take some away) + we have position + we have a skill advantage. We can get 2 streets of value from our K top pair vs all his midpairs + draws, true, sometimes we're dominated, but we are folding to a lot of action anyway + are not vBetting our 1 pair on the river most likely; we also can make him fold on some dry flops; we can get paid off big with our nut flush if we hit it + sometimes villain may play his draws passively and we can check after getting called on the flop and maybe even win a showdown with K high.

      Though villain seems to have a donkbet range, I am very keen on discovering what kind of hands he is donking with because that will probably tell me something about his check/calling range as well so I don't mind him not always checking to me as I can often raise vs his donkbet with some backdoors and at the very worst see what he is donking with @ showdown.

      Hello Avatars91,

      Well you have still position so why not to raise it and play vs the loose guy. :) We should still have implied odds and once again putting him on a range ain't really clever cause you don't really know what kind of range he can show up in those spots.

      Best Regards.
