      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.50(BB) Replayer
      SB ($32.20)
      Hero ($59.05)
      UTG ($51.65)
      UTG+1 ($52.70)
      CO ($50.75)
      BTN ($74.10)

      Dealt to Hero 8:club: 8:heart:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $1.50, fold, fold, Hero calls $1

      FLOP ($3.25) 7:diamond: 7:spade: 4:heart:

      Hero checks, CO bets $2, Hero raises to $5.50, CO raises to $10.50, Hero folds

      CO wins $13.55

      Raise is good option to play this hand? In my opinion if I raise here I polarize my range between pair (88,99 and sometime 55,66)/air becouse probably I only call 7x here and 44 but if I call here i don't know anythink more about my place in this hand.

      I've always had trouble understanding that line in 6max without history, i just don't think it accomplishes anything until your opponent has a reason to get suspicious in that spot.

      Most people at nl50 will just assume the first time that you've slowplayed a big pair or you hit a 7 and fold, they'll never ever call with worse and when they call you you're just as dead as if you had folded to a 2nd barrel, except you wasted more money before losing.

      Just c/c the flop and possibly c/c any turn depending on how aggressive you think CO is (will he barrel scare cards, will he pot control with not so good overpairs..). c/f turn if you feel like you can't make a good enough guess as to whether you're beat or not on the turn.

      Hope it helps.
