      Hi Hingpoker,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: CO looks fishy since he limped in and the only hand that makes sense in his range is 33 (that would limp behind and call). If he was a nitty guy, lets say a 8/4 doing this I'd insta fold the flop.

      But if we don't have that info and can expect him to be fishy I would go with the hand because we can see kx and draws in his range. So this is player dependent.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply please hit the "advise judge to take another look" button so we can see your reply.

      Would you class 13/8 as nitty? And thanks

      Yes, unfortunately that would classify as nitty even for full ring.

      I would suggest that when you post hands post as much info as you can about your opponents because the villain(s) is very important in a hand.

      So let's look at this 13/8. What do you think he limps behind with?

      Do you think he limps AK or let's say KT? Or does he normally limp in small pairs (in hopes of set mining) and suited aces/connectors?

      And if he calls those suited aces how do you think they play their draws. Passively or aggressively?

      So you can see where I am going with this.

      Against a guy like him I'd bet fold that flop without a doubt.
