      Hero?
      One thing is certain, I will not fold this hand. So I'm going broke against flushes anyway, so lets take a look at the other hands.
      If he has 7x, he's going to call a push. If he has something like 2p, he may only call a 50% bet. Ah, these loose players would call a push I think with 2p.

      Hi there,

      Aren't we calling to loose OOP against a loose opponent?

      That's the point :s_biggrin:

      See why it sucks even when you hit (which is a rare event)? Position, position.

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: Despite him being loose I still think our hand is ok to play (considering the min raise). Definitely not the greatest hand but against 36% open we should still be fine. Of course if we are in doubt about how we play postflop we can simply fold it.

      Postflop: As played pot that turn and get the money in if possible (probably can raise bigger since we need to set up the rivers for a comfortable shove that's farther away from a PSB).

      Alternatively, considering how drawy the board is and that half the deck (roughly) brings in an ugly card for us we can also overbet 3-bet shove that turn. We may lose value from some 1p+weakdraw but a 7x rarely ever folds and then he may call pair+stronger draw.

      As played I'd ship river too but I would of preferred a bigger turn raise and then on the river we had a smaller push which may get called more often.
