      BU stats 24/7 AF:14 fold to flop cbet:67(3) after 42 hands.

      Pre flop: standart open

      Flop: don't see a lot of value in betting, so I x/c

      Turn: I would fold on the turn if he betted

      River: he can have 7 and Q, so I think it's a fold.

      Hi.

      Preflop: This shouldn't be a standard open from CO, it is certainly a loose open. I think it's probably within the top 30-35% of hands, which is too weak to include in a top 25% range.

      Flop: good
      Turn: no reason to lead

      River: I think he will just bluff a ton here given that you showed weakness on 2 streets. He also seems aggro so you can probably check/call.

      Thanks.

      So you would open about 25% from CO?

      It is really dependent on table dynamics, but 25% seems like a standard CO opening TAG range.

      Of course at lower limits you can certainly get away with it and when I steal >30%+ range I tend to use a 2-2.5bb opening raise size instead.

      Remember, weaker range = smaller bet/raise size.
