      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (8 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      SB ($10)
      Hero (BB) ($1.80)
      UTG ($2.15)
      UTG+1 ($10)
      MP1 ($2.70)
      MP2 ($18.20)
      CO ($8.85)
      Button ($14.10)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, J
      5 folds, Button raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.35, Hero raises to $1.80 (All-In), 2 folds

      Total pot: $1.20 | Rake: $0

      open raise from late position. I'm following the rule "re-steal with 88+ AJ+". Does the sb call change anything, or should I still simply play the re-steal?

      Personally I would avoid advanced moves without the stats, but AJ is in resteal range against unkown, so if there was no call by SB I would push, but let's see what the judges say about this one, because you cannot really tell when SB is doing, is he dead money or something else...

      Hello dandycall,

      A blinddefense 'call' on the SB is rather weak/quite loose and quite dumb because you are OOP thus I see most of the time SB's call as dead money thus it creates 4% equity advantage for us.

      so with that having said, this is an Okay re-steal. But I think - once again - that restealing with 99/TT+ , AQ+ is the best profitable move for a basic shortie to start restealing with.

      Best regards,
