      The thinnest call you'll ever make (perhaps) if you take his PF stats at face-value. Given that most players won't play their monsters like this then your call has to be clearly +EV.

      Hey Aimboy,

      I have another question, does the opponent also defend his blinds passively, does he call preflop vs the steal or does he only defend by restealing? Because if calls part of his range, then as mentioned by Nunki, calling his resteal is going to be more profitable, because he most likely cold calls strong part of his range.

      Given only the info from the first post:

      You need 44.5 BEQ after the steal and against 25% range you get 46,6. So, calling him was the right decision. Nice hand.

      Regards,
