      It's a bit weak kicker, but I'm against only one opponent, so I usually go broke with top pair medium kicker.

      fold preflop
      3 unkown Villains are sitting behind you. There is a high risk of a resteal.
      A steal with K9s from CO is to loose.
      Wait for better spots to steal.

      Hi burek2000,

      you don't have much stats but the blinds seem to be pretty loose, so i dont like your steal here. when you steal you have to go broke with tp also the board is pretty drawy.


      Best Regards

      First, I wouldn't rely on the stats in this hand, because I have 12 and less hands from those guys.

      Second, I am posting from CO, which means in order to make a steal I only need to invest 2,5 BB for a 2,5 BB pot. So, I need to win the blinds only in 50% of tries to achieve +EV, but I'm getting better results against unknown anyway...

      More or less I have +EV without even playing postflop, but postflop is the reason I posted this hand. I'm very happy about the information that I have to go broke with TP when stealing.

      Thank you!
