      No stats = No steals.

      A8o is on the edge of a solid stealing hand..
      If you have stats of BB, please post them :)

      I agree with Gerv. Actually on the low limits I rarely try to steal. Imo it is better to play solid SSS till you get at least to 0.25/0.50$

      Easy fold on preflop.

      And I don't agree with you guys ;) . I mean, steals are normal even without stats, but you have to balance your play. If you were active recently, you need to back down, even if you have a hand that would be suitable for a steal (like a8o). It's even more important than your actual hand, because you don't really want to see showdown with steal hand...

      Cbet is a must and well done, giving up on the turn is a must as well. Well played, it wasn't really profitable, but I'm sure it will be over time.
