      Preflop I'd make bigger, 3BB + 1 for limper, 4BB.

      Postflop given his stack size I'm playing AI with him by any means, worse Ax, draws & other random stuff is all there.

      Hi Shero,

      Preflop: I would make it at least 4bb here

      Postflop: On one side we have a mid stack raising a very drawy board but on the other hand we have a big sample on villain and he is not overly aggressive. In fact he seems very nitty for a mid stack.

      So it's possible that he has many AQ/AK/sets/2p here so it's close. How often does he ck/raise over that sample?

      Mayhap he was playing solid with more BBs in his stack and then lost, so he wasn't middle stack from the very beginning? I think it can be an important info also. However if he's known to be playing MSS for a long time then yes, we should reconsider our intentions.
