      I struggle to play most hands in the SB, never knowing what to do and it gets me in alot of trouble...

      The ideal play here is to Call and see a flop right, even though CO could cause problems Pre?

      Flop is a terrible call I can never beat anything here.

      Preflop without information I would fold.
      Calling here is likely to put us in a lot of tough spots postflop since there is likely to be an overcard on the flop and we are going to play three-way most often.

      Being four-way on the flop, I prefer check/folding here.
      When BU raises I would definitely fold here.
