      How do you play 89o in bb vs unknown sb raise?

      3bet preflop > call?

      And postflop just bet ones because we don't have extra eq?

      what about the spoiler? :P = spew?

      Hey mate,

      I think preflop is very dependant on what you know about your opponent. Does he barrel with initiative? Does he play back in 3bet pots? You have you have to find which spot is that in which he gives up most and play your weak hands to get to that spot. Often it is when facing aggression so 3betting makes sense. Postflop, I think you don't represent a value hand when checking the turn so I'm worried about looking into the spolier when you ask if it's spew... :rolleyes:

      OK, that is kind of spewy in the sense that you have the better hand quite often.. I like trying out stuff like that though.. the result (he folds or not) is important for long term in my view because you know you can win pots in 3bet pots when checking back turn, not only by barreling 3 streets. :)
