      Preflop: Hero is BU with 4:heart: , 4:diamond:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0,30, SB raises to $1,50 (All-In), BB folds, Hero calls $1,20.

      I was stealing the hand, then when he raised I needed 40% equity which I really should have against his defend blinds range.

      Hi Xephon,

      I don't really like stealing with low PPs becasue they play really badly post flop. Imo you should fold to his re-steal, your hand is weak and you can't really determine his range here with such a small sample.

      33 hands is way too small to determine his blind defending range.

      Hey RahXephon1,

      stealing from BU with 44 is ok against those tight guy, but I would fold to resteal. SB's range is probably tighter than BB's and against standard resteal range(AJ+/88+) your equity is only 37%. On the other hand, you can't determine his restealing range after only 34 hands and therefore I would just fold presuming his range is AJ+/88+.
