      BTN: $33.64 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 2.7, Hands: 1616
      SB: $39.06 - VPIP: 26, PFR: 23, 3B: 9, AF: 1.7, Hands: 176

      CO: $28.20 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 6, AF: 2.7, Hands: 1616

      Pre Flop: ($0.45) Hero is BB with 8 :spade: 7 :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.90, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.90, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.60

      Flop: ($2.85) 5 :spade: 9 :spade: J :diamond: (3 players)
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.85, BTN calls $2.85, Hero raises to $10, UTG raises to $20.10, BTN calls $17.25, Hero raises to $29.61, BTN calls $9.51

      MP is a very weak reg./fish

      Preflop, i guess it`s ok to call from the BB?

      On the flop, i can just call, but i thought that if i raise, i can make BTN fold Ksxs,Asxs,Qsxs,AJ,KJ. I expect him to raise his sets on this flop almost always.

      Obviously, i don`t have FE vs. MP, but i`m flipping against his range and with his small stack and all the money in the pot, it is ok.

      Hi Achilles,

      Preflop Villains opening range is rather tight and he is not full stacked. That implies that we can't really play for FE postflop and we are relying just on implied odds which are less vs a 2/3 stack. However we just need to put in 2 BB so I don't think the call is terrible.

      Postflop: We have a monster draw and can't really go wrong either way but against a PSB + call we rarely have FE (I'd say close to never). And since our equity stacking off versus 3 won't be super amazing we can go either way. It's true that BTN is most likely weaker but he can have better draws that reduce our equity. With that in mind our raise/go broke is fine.

      As a side note, when you leave a reply, don't forget to hit the advise judge to take anohter look butotn.
