      Hero (BB): $26.55 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 3.2, Hands: 47008
      BTN: $27.58 - VPIP: 19, PFR: 15, 3B: 6, AF: 2.3, Hands: 24786
      SB: $15.96 - VPIP: 27, PFR: 6, 3B: 2, AF: 1.4, Hands: 1294

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with 6 :club: 6 :spade:
      BTN raises to $0.62, SB folds, Hero ?

      is this a good spot to 3b/5bet shove a small poket pair ?

      btn steal: 27, btn fold to 3b: 31%
      4bet range 3.5%.
      i don't have a stat for fold to 5bet.

      when should i be inclined to 3b/5b?
      what stats should the opponent have to make a 3b/5b-shove profitable ?

      thank you

      Hi.

      If his fold to 5bet % is 55%+ you can consider it. If it's 60%+ you should definitely do it. Positional stats help a lot, so look at his 4bet range from BU. IF it's 7%+ then it's good. I think 3.5% overall is slightly on the aggro side so it may be a reasonable play.

      If not flatting with 66 vs a smallish 2.5bb raise is also acceptable.

      Thanks.
