      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 6:club: , 6:spade:
      5 folds, BU raises to $0.45, Hero raises to $2.05 (All-In), 2 folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back..

      Final Pot: $1.00

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of sixes (6c 6s)

      Hero wins with a pair of sixes (6c 6s)

      Summary: I'm not really sure what to think about this one. On one hand I was fairly sure BU was trying to steal – BB and SB were short stacks, and BU had done the same thing last round. On the other hand, I didn't have much data on BU and BB could have called me with a large range if he/she thought I was re-stealing.

      Ok play? Or very lucky and don't do again?

      Tough one. Basic SSS tells you to fold. You dont have enough stats to really analyze the math properly. All you are left with is your table read, and your image...
      BTW, stealing/restealing is not recommended at NL10, too many chum. Personally, I dont bother with it, you only end up with a headache. On the other hand, fishing for cheap sets with small pockets is fun, the 1bb investment is easy to fold too

      Hi John,

      You are coinflipping against any 2 Overcards and are Way-Behind against any overpair.
      I would have folded and live another day ;)
