      Hi all,

      villain is playing 30/28/13 from 41 hands and 44% (4/9) PFR from EP (note tracker had QJs in his EP range).

      I think I misplayed this hand quite badly (I'm going to blame ipoker for the 12 second decision time and not me for being a spazz :f_cool: )! That said, I'm still a bit confused as to what the best line would be. Raise/fold flop? Villain seems loose, so I can certainly see him getting it in with worse 2 pair combos and possibly even AA. He had only cbet 1/5 though (although the number of 15-20bb stacks on NL5 speed, might distort the true values) but I would still expect to get value from worse hands and pair+draw combos by raising.

      Any advice appreciated!

      As a general rule of thumb dont raise something for value and fols to a reraise unless u are sure that u have value from worse but are cruahed by his reraising range.

      Given the board is a 3straight flop i would just keep calling and bet when checked to.
