      Hello,

      I am checking behind and hoping BU do the same, if not then I'd prefer to fold.

      As played
      Looks like you can call there.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      I think draws work better along with FE. I'm only checking behind here if I know that there's an opponent aggressive enough to ch/r bluff in a multi way pot. Otherwise, I wanna keep my initiative. If we get called, we'll take a nice pot in case we hit our flush and if we hit something like a 9, we might even be good. We can go for pot control and take down the pot versus a worst pair or something. We can also barrel scare cards.


      Once BU shoves, I call. Shorties shove pretty much anything, so we easily get the odds to call.
      He could be straight drawing, he could have a random 7 and many other crazy holdings. I'll never fold against his shove

      Hello,
      I also prefer lead/shoving here.Make your initial bet bigger, to create more FE and to have an easier call against BU's shove.
