      MP: $1.31 (65.5 bb)
      CO: $3.13 (156.5 bb)
      BTN: $0.86 (43 bb)
      Hero (SB): $4.50 (225 bb)
      BB: $1.12 (56 bb)
      UTG: $0.86 (43 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6 6
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, BB raises to $0.18, Hero folds

      The opponent is TAGgish. Later on, he tried to do this again, but I had a bit more playable hand, 4-betted and he folded. At this point, however, I didn't know whether he's capable of 3-betting light at all (it's not that common on NL2).

      He's short, and I cannot call him for set-mining.

      All in all, is raise/fold an optimal line in this position against an unknown TAG?

      Hi German,

      Preflop: Considering villain is short I'd also opt for a fold.

      If he proves to be 3-betting a lot we can start folding more SB and start raise/4-betting a wider range for value.
