      Dealt to Hero T:heart: 8:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.40, fold, BB raises to $1.20, Hero calls $0.80

      FLOP ($2.50) 6:diamond: 3:diamond: 5:club:

      BB bets $1.40, Hero folds

      BB wins $2.38



      his 3bet vs steall in BB is only 5%, but it looked like he is adjusting vs minraises. He did once made a 3bet vs my inrasie and I folded. Few hands later he makes 3bet again. So I decided to experiment and call. I have easu playability hand -which is not often dominated.

      And I checked - even vs 5% 3bet range I have 30% equity so its decent. Problem might come because of dominated flushes - my T high is not that good, he can have KQs, Axs.

      He is also less agro on turns and has low wtsd, so I can often float him.

      But this time I did not hit any equity practically, so I give up.

      Hey SPeedFANat1c,

      Given the stats, this is a fold pre-flop.

      Given your info about him adjusting to min-raises its possibly a call, but don't know for certain since I wasn't playing the game myself.

      Even if you could call there would be stronger hands you'd put in your range first, like AJ, QK, TT-QQ, ATs/A9s, QTs/QJs etc etc, it may be unnecessary to call as weak as T8s especially if you are not 100% convinced villain is actually 3betting light in the first place.

      Seeing as you do call you should probably float any flop + bet the turn. Villain has cbet 4/4 in 3bet pots. He could have random garbage. Plus it's not as if you have zero equity, you still have two overcards + backdoor straight.
