      Hello!

      Stats:
      2.4k hands, 16/11/3.6, 3bVOpenFromBU:11(84), Foldto4b:33(3)
      FlopCbet3bpot:100(11), AF:2.3
      WTSD:21 W$SD:61

      Can I call preflop?If no, how can I defend vs light3bets?
      Flop raise okay?
      I think the call is okay, it'll be (30% pot odds) a very little +EV, and it's good for my image.

      Hey,

      Why do you open so big on the button?

      Postflop, I don't like the raise that much. You don't represent a strong hand by raising too often and definitely don't stack off. You get it in against better draws just way too often, not to mention the way better made hands in his range. What is his 3bet from BB? 11% vs BU is not a big 3bet at all. Against that and given the sizing, 79s is a fold imo without more of an idea about postflop.

      Thank you.

      My standard oR size 3bb from CO, BU, SB. 3.5bb from others pos, because, there are a lot of fishes in this limit, up to NL50. From NL100 it'll be smaller.

      Hmm, just because there are fish, I don't see why give up playing more hands vs them and use a tighter range with a bigger sizing. If they are fish, minraise some hands just for immediate folding equity and raise bigger with your value hands. If there are regs in the blinds, I would go with minraising buttons.
