      Hi L,

      What is your steal from SB? It seems very wide to me to raise this, around the 40-45% mark.. That's very very wide against anyone that is a reg.

      Postflop, I would say call and proceed from there.. Obv your opponent raises a lot and by calling you represent a good showdown value hand plus you have your flushdraw. If you think he is likely to fold to a 3bet, since your flushdraws is not high at all, I don't mind 3bet/folding it but generally seems like a waste.

      I definitely dislike opening so wide from SB against a reg. It's a spot where you just burn money imo.

      Last month i opened 42% from SB.
      If he folds 67% vs me its direct money given the odds...
      I did 3bet/fold, im not that excited to get in when a flush comes, he might have a few better..

      42% is quite wide. You should seriously consider tightening up.

      67% is money if you don't play postflop at all.. Once you do anything but check/fold postflop, that affects your overall EV. Sometimes it increases it and sometimes it decreases it. When he folds just about enough but you show up with a weak range postflop OOP, that can severly damage your EV.

      I know that 42% its big. But let me tell you thats under the average were i play, and not even close. I see regs OR 80...70%..from the SB, and some MSS even 90%, i dont know what they have in their heads really. Againts some they steal like 4/4 and i fold 0/4 from the BB and they just keep stealing all session long like with pretty much any 2 :f_o: . I think i got a bit into that mood of stealing wide.

      That's their leak and bad play, you don't have to make it yours as well imo..

      You will be surprised how much you save by stealing less because although pre looks +EV, you end up losing too much postflop without even noticing it.
