      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 8:spade: 8:diamond:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, MP+1 raises to 4 BB, fold, BTN calls 4 BB, fold, Hero calls 3 BB

      Flop: (12.5 BB, 3 players) 5:diamond: 4:spade: J:heart:
      Hero checks, MP+1 checks, BTN bets 7 BB, fold, fold

      BTN wins 12 BB

      MP checks. His stats are incredibly tight only 5%pfr over 461 hands so I'm almost assuming he has an overpair.

      The button player is actually loose, so I actually considered calling but thought with the MP still to bet I was likely beat. I'm assuming folding is best here.

      Let's say MP isn't there and it's just that looser player on the button. Would a call be a good play? I checked and I have 56% equity against his range.

      The only problem is if he double barrels I can only really call with if an 8 hits hits the board...or an undercard I guess. I just think that either that button player has Jx or he's bluffing. I don't see the 5 or 4 connecting with his range.

      Hi Edukator,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: When MP checks he rarely has something. Most likely AK/AQ that doesn't hit.

      However, the BTN player isn't that loose at just 15/6. His range is also on the stronger side and I'd just fold as well.
