      Nope you cannot.

      But like you said... pre-flop isnt too good. We play suited connectors against big stacks.
      I'd just fold pre.

      But well 20 cents more from BB is ok I guess.

      You´re quite crushed by their pf stats
      I think fold is better pf than call
      Flop is fine

      Look at their stack sizes first of all.. you have like no implieds for calling a SC, you're also calling it OOP so playing a draw against their stack sizes will suck (even if you do hit a draw, which is what you will hit mostly if you hit at all, you'll often have to fold right on the flop anyway because they won't give you odds enough to call without implieds - which you don't have).

      I'm not quite sure but I think kaitz meant stacks and not stats :)

      Kaitz is talking about their raise / call PF %.

      It doesnt really apply here as MP3 is only an 8 hand sample and isnt playing SSS, while BU is a weak sample and is playing midstack station style.

      For a single blind you can surely find a call here. You have 21-1 implieds on the raiser; when you call a standard 4BB raise from a BSS you have only a bit more than that (25-1).

      Im finding a call then donk-folding the flop after catching TP.
