      Dealt to Hero K:club: A:heart:

      UTG calls $0.05, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.20, CO raises to $0.67, fold, SB calls $0.65, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.47

      FLOP ($2.11) 3:club: 4:club: 6:spade:

      SB checks, Hero checks, CO checks

      TURN ($2.11) 3:club: 4:club: 6:spade: 6:club:

      SB bets $1, Hero folds, CO folds

      SB wins $2.02

      SB was 24/12 with fishy stats over 286 hands, CO std TAG 3 bet 3.7%

      I'm not totally confident I can show a profit stacking off against the CO, but the caller gives me excellent odds to call, even though I'm oop.

      Is it better to stack off here though as CO will fold a fair bit and there's extra dead money in the pot now. What if I 4 bet and CO shoves and SB calls? I'm not afraid of the SB's range, but CO seems to be a better reg at these stakes with good stats over 1.6K hands and he's happy to get it in against likely both of us, should that worry me, or is he likely taking advantage of the dead money from SB?.

      Hi ChangNoi,

      Preflop: I don't like calling preflop versus multiple people because our hand rarely flops something. So we should look at 4-betting or folding.

      So calling OOp with a hand that misses often is far from ideal.
