      PartyGaming - $0.10 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      Hero (BB): $10.00
      UTG: $10.61
      CO: $8.98
      BTN: $8.41
      SB: $12.93

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has 6:spade: 8:diamond:

      UTG calls $0.10, CO calls $0.10, fold, SB calls $0.05, Hero checks

      Flop: ($0.40, 4 players) 5:spade: 3:heart: 2:club:
      SB checks, Hero checks, UTG checks, CO checks

      Turn: ($0.40, 4 players) 4:diamond:
      SB bets $0.38, Hero raises to $1.52, fold, fold, SB raises to $3.00, [color=red][b]Hero???

      I didn't know the SB at all and by that time (15 hands) he just seemed semi-loose pre flop.

      The other two in the hand were really loose passive so that's why i didn't mind showing obvious strenght. Because i thought that they would stack-off with an A if i managed my betting sizing correctly.

      Hi Deo,

      Preflop: can't do much with 68o so checking is fine.

      Postflop: It's possible that SB can overplay an Ax hand but we wouldn't really know without info. Since we only lose to 67 (which can have) and he may overvalue some Ax hands I don't mind going with the hand here.

      The one thing that would make me question our play slightly it's the fact that SB pots the turn there. I'd expect an Ax to bet smaller on average however he may also overplay some sets.

      Alternatively we can call and play the river.
