      I'm a bit stumped here and call for Pot Control. I don't like a Raise as you'll likely only see action from Better hands.

      Oh, by the way, I Bet/Fold Flop Potsize.

      Hi SYJ,

      SB opencomplete is considered very weak play, so you can raise 4BB preflop to win the hand directly most of the time or raise flop to potsize when checked to you(it doesn't matter what hand you have, because you're raising for FE which is great against SB opencompleters).

      As played, I agree with DaPhunk it's better to just call villain down, because with 1 cards straight on the board you will less likely get action from worse hands. If villain doesn't bet again on the river then I'm betting myself 2/3 potsize for value.
