      $0.15/$0.25 No Limit Holdem
      10 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      UTG ($60.04)
      UTG+1 ($28.10)
      UTG+2 ($24.75)
      MP1 ($30.35)
      MP2 ($6.30)
      MP3 ($4.35)
      CO ($23.60)
      BTN ($22.70)
      SB ($10.35)
      Hero (BB) ($5.45)

      Pre-flop: ($0.40, 10 players) Hero is BB :7s: A:
      6 folds, CO raises to $0.90, 2 folds, Hero ????

      Villain is 32/16 after 175 hands. One orbit before, he raised in mp and i pushed with a really short stack in LP and he folded twice.

      In this instance i decided to just fold, let him know that he has some fold equity against me. Hopefully to catch him later with better cards.

      175 hands is not enough to have all information about villains stealing habits, but according to the resteals chart you need at least A8o to resteal against someone who steals with 35%.

      Given that you restealed a couple of times before is better to tighten up even more.

      Given recent history I think I may fold this time (not necessarily though), but otherwise I push. 32/16 is easily stealing a ton.

      Stealing stats would be very useful though to make a more educated decision.

      with 175 hands, the stealing stats are worthless imo, but i'm putting him on almost 50% stealing range based on his pfr.

      Anyway, i got paid off by this megafish a bit later. Picked up aces and he re-popped me with 55.. LOL

      nh. A7 is too marginal with this hand sample, imo.

      Hey elhh82,

      ATS would be useful here, at least just to have a bit of a picture of the villain.

      If villain folded from MP when you reraised him, this doesn't tell us much about his stealing range. So, if you think he has ATS of about 50% then you can easily push against him with A7o. Sometimes, specially when short stackers are in the blinds, some people might steal 100%, then you could easily resteal, but for such a read you'd need to follow the action at the table.

      On the other hand, if stats are your only info, I would prefer to remain conservative and fold.
