      BTN wins $0.50


      BB: 25/15 20h

      BTN steal total stat in session was 80. So my fold looks really weak.

      Is this a call? I have 56% equity vs 80%

      If I call, I don't know how I am outplaying him. He cbets 2 streets often. He does not fold cbets to raises.

      Maybe he would fold on turn to a c/r?

      He is BU, he is allowed to play many hands. Since you are SB you have an easy fold. In BB you can call and play postflop a bit. The call doesn't have to make you money, it just has to lose you less than the 1bb you already have in the pot. You can call preflop and float or check/raise flops. Against someone wide and aggressive you sometimes just have to get into this wide range/high variance game, otherwise you are just leaving money on the table. That said, given the rake impact on NL20 you might want to just fold preflop. It's a close decision because vs 80% open you should be able to play it well without rake. With the rake though, you might be better off folding.
