      UTG+1 Stats: VPIP: 35, PFR: 16, 3B: 3, AF: 1,9, Hands: 91
      CO Stats: VPIP: 19, PFR: 7, 3B: 3, AF: 1,7, Hands: 3709

      Another quite marginal call preflop, but I did it both because the PFR is very loose and easy to play against, and because the table was very fishy, therefore knowing I had my implied odds (many possible calls after me).

      On flop i'm not getting the odds for OESD but I have a backdoor too and decide to make my lil semibluff to make them fold/isolate too.

      CO calls out of nowhere tho, at this point I give up.
      Had a temptation on river to bet but I mean, I didn't really have an idea on what he calls like that on flop, even after I have so many hands vs him I've never seen this play, so I thought of hidden monster.
      He's also usually easy to push out of flops.

      hi.

      i think you should just call the flop when he bets so small (half pot). i dont think raising is too bad either and i agree that you should give up when CO calls because he looks strong.

      Considering HM2 takes into account the rake (therefore the pots that you see here are bigger), that was actually a 2/3 or 3/4 bet from him, not half, just so you know. Maybe it does make a difference between choosing a call out of odds or a raise? That's what made me decide at least.
