      Can you even call it that? :D
      Villain is a nit, and I was playing loose at the table (around 38/36). I expect to see a set or overpair a lot when he raises.

      Anyway my reasoning: with these hands I don't want to see the turn, who knows what scare card can come and kill my action.
      +The manly 600bb shove might add some tiny amount of fold equity.

      Correct, or would someone just reraise and get it in on turn to lure more money?

      OESFD is playable one way on the flop - raise to shove. Only hand you are behind is a set, and that only 60-40.

      Nh, wp, though very loose raise PF :)

      Hi,
      Preflop:if u play LAG then normal but too loose for tag.
      Flop:against sets you have 45% equity but if u widen his range by overpairs,pair
      +oesd,pair+fd etc u would have 50% equity+maybe FE so raise (push) on flop.
      Sets always have redraw chance so push for opp is profitable too.
      600bb shove might add some tiny amount of fold equity

      I would not overestimate FE being Lag,for me 600bb push when I have legitimate hand easier call and good opportunity to double up.Those lags live from our paranoia :D
      Nh and GL :)

      Well at micros its even mindfu*king the fish, or abusing the Tag's. But NL10 TAG and paranoia doesn't get together, they are so self-centred its unbelievable(no matter what you do they play the same)
