      note:
      passive with weak pair



      I did not like my fold vs this raise. This could easily be a bluf. Just don't know what to do - call or reraise. I guess call is better as blfuf catch. He maybe will stop bluffing on turn and I have outs for backdoor fd and ace.

      He is still agro on turn, so might be not stopping. So really not sure.

      Hey SPeed,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: This is a hard spot to find ourselves in OOP. TBH I think our best move is to fold given the lack of information and position. Equity is not the greatest and really only 3x8, 3xA and 10x spade can help us which happens only 1/3 of the time.

      But yes, if we wanted to continue, calling would be better. We do theoretically get ~18% pot odds.
