      It seemed too strong here. Maybe it was a play, thinking that I wanted to steal the blinds.

      Hi,


      Hard to say without knowing anything about him. If he's decent he has flushdraw+overcards, a set or air there, maybe some kind of combo draw with 8d7d if he's a bit loose or JJ if he doesn't 3bet much.

      Since you nearly potted it that shouldn't really look like a good spot for him to make a play, as apparently you aren't going anywhere with your hand, and if he's strong you're basically either dead against a set or flipping against something like KdQd, so i don't mind the fold even tho it's sad.

      You can probably call the raise in position and see what happens next if you're confident he's bluffing/semibluffing there enough for you to look for a safe turn, but you're gonna put yourself in tough spots later on if you're not used to it (turn is a blank he tanks and donks half pot, it looks weak but it commits you, what do you do etc), so it might be best to just pitch it at nl5.


      Hope it helps.
