      SB showed 5 7 and lost (-$2.95 net)


      PF: I called IP to set mine. Both blinds are passive and haven't 3b in 200~ hands so I'm not afraid of them squeezing.

      Flop: CO's bet into 3 other players look very strong so I decided to just raise off the bat and play for stacks against him.

      As played, I got lucky against Sb.

      2 Questions:

      1) Preflop, if I see that the 2 blinds are squeeze happy w high 3b% should I 3b CO myself to play HU? Although w 66s, it's like really close against CO's opening range?

      2) On the flop, I actually thought of flatting CO's bet to entice both blinds to call. But I made a little calculation which is if I raised 3x and CO calls, it's exactly the same as both blinds calling behind. And I decided there's a higher chance CO will call my 3x raise than having both blinds cold calling behind. Is this a correct play?

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I do prefer a call on that dry flop as well. A call may even induce a lighter raise/shove from let's say SB.

      As played we can't fold to SBs shove here.
