      CO mucked and won $8.36 ($4.16 net)

      On the flop, i don`t have FE, so i decided to call. Raising is fine for sure, but i think calling is better in this spot?

      Turn is the same.

      Hi Achilles,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think we should just get it in on the flop given his stack. We don't really know that we don't have FE as villain may raise worse to try and take the pot away. Unless you know he is a passive fish.
