      Nice hand, well played. You could also raise a bit less but it's fine.

      Pfr: 4bb+poster = 5bb, raise 0.5 preflop. This will also make it easier for you to call 0.5 more to play for set value against the BB after MP3 shoves - as it is, I would definately fold preflop. Calling 0.75 is too much here!

      I called for set odds against fairly loose / agressive / showdown bound BB. As you can see he was willing to push it all in on a wing and a prayer (Ac2o).

      With BB already in for a buck five he had $10.55 left I could hit him for. I had to call 75c at just over 14-1. With position, dead money in the pot and a loose player cold calling the 3 bet in front of me I couldnt find a fold because if I hit a set I believe I am a very, very strong chance to be paid off here.
