      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: what info do we have on SB?

      I can see this spot good for a squeeze preflop but as far as calling goes we do have relative position so we can call a somewhat wider range of suited broadways, connectors, suited aces (that we don't 3-bet), etc.

      It really depends though on the SB here as well. If he is a fish I would be 3-bet isolating him here very light and not calling that often.

      If he is a reg/tighter reg we could squeeze bluff here a lot.

      should I play more tight on 50 NL until I get enough stats? and then play aggressively?
      on 50NL,they dont fold to CB easily :f_cry:

      That would be an option, at least until you get more familiar with the limits. However I would only tighten up slightly OOP (like in this case).
