      Hey guys,

      Stats:
      MP: 12/9/80h nit
      SB: 51/19/30h fish

      Preflop:
      Should we call or is SB too shortstacked? I also thought we have one of the better hands to defend vs a nit his openraise. Better than ATo or something. :)

      Extra: What do we do with other hands like AT, AJ, KJ?

      Postflop:
      Allright for those odds?

      Hi Farmarchist,

      Preflop: Considering that villain is short (the SB target) I don't like our call as much. Against short players we don't want to play many hands that rely on implied odds or fold equity to show a profit so I prefer to have big cards that can flop big pairs.

      So while AT/AJ/KJ may be dominated by MP we can play them more straight forward versus him and the fish will be dominated a lot more by us (and if we flop a pair with them we can go with the hand versus SB).


      Flop: As played I'd actually just fold this flop. We have little equity and villain can bet his Ax for gutshot and pairs like this.

      Our draws rarely hit (5% to hit the fd by river) so it's not a great spot.

      But my biggest concern is that we still have MP behind us that still has a strong range and can raise a LOT of hands here.

      So simply fold and move on.
