      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: I think that your fold is fine versus an EP or MP raise. We could 3-bet as a bluff with position if our image hasn't been out of whack.

      We can call more hands with playability that don't get dominated as easily from a tighter EP/MP range.

      Before we make a call/raise/fold we have to also look behind us. It seems that SB and BB are fishy so calling hands that play well multiway (the ones you listed there play good) would be nice.

      If people 3-bet a lot from the blinds then we might 3-bet hands like 78s so we minimize the chance of getting squeezed.
