      Hi,

      Is this hand okay to be raising in MP SH?
      I have just had my first SH session.
      Villain had stats of 53/25 but only over a very small sample (14 hands).

      Full Tilt, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      BB: $11.63 (116.3 bb)
      UTG: $10.31 (103.1 bb)
      Hero (MP): $10 (100 bb)
      CO: $8.14 (81.4 bb)
      BTN: $13.01 (130.1 bb)
      SB: $11.84 (118.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K J
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.40, CO calls $0.40, 3 folds

      Flop: ($0.95) 3 4 K (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.66, CO raises to $1.50, Hero ???

      Hello,

      To raise this or not quite much depends on you. I would usually recommend folding here, but if you think you are good enough to play it postflop or there are some other factors that might push us towards raising I don't mind it.

      Just bet/fold the flop.
      We have a top pair but we have hardly any information about him, plus we are OOP so bet/folding looks like the best play.

      Best,
      Plamen

      TY,

      That is what I did. (B/F)

      Didn't want to be guessing or facing another big bet on the turn.

      Thanks,
      Zach

      Why not to open 0.3 pre, as this is SH table? Gives you lot more space to play post-flop and you can definitely open KJo from MP :)
