      Hero (SB): $77.45 (154.9 bb)
      BB: $78.67 (157.3 bb)
      UTG: $50 (100 bb)
      MP: $54.70 (109.4 bb)
      CO: $83.22 (166.4 bb)
      BTN: $22.94 (45.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with :3c: :4c:
      4 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BB calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.50) :Tc: :3h: :4s: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.50, BB raises to $4.48, Hero calls $2.98

      Turn: ($11.46) :6s: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BB bets $9.14, Hero folds


      Preflop: BB is most likelly a reg, playing 22/17 in 37 hands. Since he folds alot vs steals so far (80%), decided to make an openraise with this hand.

      Flop: Cbetting for value and then face a check/raise. Since I block most of the sets and TT is sometimes 3betting preflop, I decided to call. I believe that in this situation he has alot of pure air in his range and some OESD's and gutshots, or maybe he is raising stuff like TP, which some of the players like doing. Ofcourse, he has sets, too. So if I 3bet, I will most likelly end up being vs better range. Not sure of this.

      Turn: I believe I could maybe call Turn and safe River, especially when his turn size looks like he wants me to fold (or he wants to protect TT, 44-33 - so he is polarized). Since he is still pretty much unknown, I decided it's the safest to fold for now.

      Tough hand to fold. I would even consider 3betting the flop, but as played I would defiantly call the turn and her-evaluate the river.

      As i can see you overfold realy hard vs aggression (i dnk the pokerstars nl50 pool maybe this is the right play but this is a clear call at the turn anyway).

      I like call flop more then 3b, and easy call turn.

      Actually I'm not sure do I or not, that's why I'm posting those hands. :f_ugly: I guess the player pool might not be that nitty as I think.

      As played calling flop and basically never folding turn, potentially folding river based on player and sizing. Its BvB and people get far more out of line and its a perfectly dry board to c/r and barrel turn with literally anything especially if you have high cbet% considering it favours him. If he isn't completely full of shit we expect to see decent TPs (JT+), A2-A5s and 55-99 assuming he is not the type to "trap" with TT+ in BB. Would fully expect to see someth like A5s w/ a gutter turned into a c/r barrel or AT/KT type hands. It blows my mind we would ever consider folding here when we block sets and I would expect to see 1pair hands at best on the turn mostly.. I must have been playing eurosites too long if stars now plays this tight :f_o:

      definitely is though. If it's a reg you should be calling for balance but vs an unknown it's a fold.
