      CO: $7.98 (199.5 bb)

      SB: $2.65 (66.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K 9
      4 folds, SB raises to $0.08, Hero raises to $0.20, SB calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.40) Q 9 8 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.30, SB calls $0.30

      Turn: ($1) 5 (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.75, SB calls $0.75

      River: ($2.50) Q (2 players)

      Too aggressive play? SB was known to be a blind stealer on the table..so that's why I reraise on preflop...

      Hi there,

      I think you should fold preflop unless he steals almost every single hand from SB. Just "known as a blind stealer" is not enough, imo. RFI in different positions is really helpful (it's a stat).

      Also, since he's short, maybe we could just call preflop.

      Wow. River play is pretty brave :) What did you think he had? I would expect to see a queen at the showdown quite often.

      Hi,

      Considering villain is short and unknown I prefer a fold preflop. Our 3-bet is also really small so he will call more often which is not good for our hand.

      As played what are we hoping an unknown villain calls/folds on turn and river?
