      Hero (CO): $10.15 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 5, AF: 4,7, Hands: 72374

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is CO with T :diamond: 7 :diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, 1 fold, SB calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.70) 7 :club: T :spade: K :diamond: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.59, SB folds

      I think that this openraise should be doable as long as BU is not really aggressive or loose. Even with the SB being such a calling station. Our plan is rather simple: we get value from him calling so loose postflop once we hit a pair or better. Thus we reduce the frequency of our bluffcBets on the flop. Our hand is doing decently enough vs his range, given our edge + our position.


             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    41.11%  39.93%   1.18% { T7s }
      MP3    58.89%  57.70%   1.18% { JJ-22, A2s+, K6s+, Q6s+, J7s+, T7s+, 97s+, 87s, 76s, 65s, 54s, A2o+, K8o+, Q8o+, J9o+, T9o, 98o, 87o }


      And if this openraise is OK, how much looser can we go? I would imagine that if villain was a fit/fold type of guy instead of a calling station we could even go with a considerably wider openraising range, couldn't we?

      Hello Avatars91,

      Seems to be fine as long you also have a bad player sitting on the blind.

      Best Regards.

      Whereas since he looks more like a calling station we'd be better off not considerably widening our range, I suppose?

      Well, depends again what kind of opponent we have on the BTN. :)

      Too wide is also bad cause you may put yourself into a lot trouble postflop.
