      Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $1.00 BB (9 handed) - Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      MP1 ($100.40)

      CO ($62.10)

      Hero (BB) ($18.50)
      UTG ($105.45)
      UTG+1 ($133.05)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, J
      7 folds, SB raises to $3, Hero calls $2

      Flop: ($6) 5, 5, 6 (2 players)
      SB bets $3.50, Hero folds

      Total pot: $6 | Rake: $0.30

      SB didn't show

      He is standard SSS player with standard stats, push, call, fold?

      This feels like a PF fold to me. I'd put a SB blind stealer on Ax+ which means you'll be behind most times.

      I think a call is unwise/expensive because a contibet is to be expected after the flop - to follow up SB's PF aggression, and then you're going to have to fold on the flop (unless you happen to hit a K).

      A PF re-raise has a better chance of sucess than a call, imo, but still feels a little loose without an Ace in your hand.

      You are bronze, have 3 posts and play nl100? Then you call a raise preflop and ask for a better line without giving decent stats?

      I would advise you to move down a few limits, post more hands and remember that we never call preflop :)

      If he steals very aggressively (exact stats needed!!) you can push, otherwise fold
