      SB: $5.64 - VPIP: 81, PFR: 42, 3B: 25, AF: 7.0, Hands: 43
      BB: $0.93 - VPIP: 67, PFR: 2, 3B: 5, AF: 0.8, Hands: 49
      Hero (UTG): $2.00 - VPIP: 24, PFR: 20, 3B: 8, AF: 4.2, Hands: 14763
      MP: $3.23 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 11, 3B: 6, AF: 1.4, Hands: 56
      CO: $2.00 - VPIP: 9, PFR: 4, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 23
      BTN: $2.65 - VPIP: 11, PFR: 10, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 83

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is UTG with T :heart: T :spade:
      Hero raises to $0.08, 3 folds, SB raises to $0.20, BB calls $0.18, Hero calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.60) 8 :heart: 6 :club: 9 :spade: (3 players)
      SB bets $0.16, BB raises to $0.32, Hero folds, SB folds

      I think I played weak on the flop, we cannot fold here, and should just call.

      I just didn't like a bet and a raise, plus BB looks like he's shoving on any action.

      I wouldn't mind shoving against him, but I don't feel like shoving against a deep SB.

      Still, with a gutshot and an overpair we should just call and re-evaluate the turn, given that their bets were so small.

      hi

      this is a really tricky spot. i dont really mind a fold actually. SB could easily reopen the action and shove over you. and BB could easily be strong with JJ/QQ/KK after coldcalling the 3bet preflop.

      Yeah, that's what I was thinking about.

      But then, on NL2 I assume that they are just fish (well, I have actual proof for that), and smart min-bet inducing or shoving over the top as a bluff are just not in their repertoire. Plus SB's CC range I believe is not far from his VPIP value of 81 :)

      Good things about a fold though:
      1) we avoid variance
      2) we practice moves as if we were playing with good opponents

      So I can really go either way here, don't you think so?

      Yes i agree its close. Bb made it really small and he only halfpotted so its callable. We would have to fold most turns though
