      Known players:

      0.02/0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:diamond: , Q:spade:
      5 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, SB raises to $0.80, 2 folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $0.45

      I have a question in general about this situation. Sometimes loose players start raising any raise from me when I'm on the button and they are SB or BB. Like in this example I raise 20 and then they raise 80 or even more.

      Do you have any advice on this? Would you have called or 4-bet against this opponent knowing that he has raised 2 times before in a similar situation.

      thanx for any help

      he probz think ur stealing so reraise him again, he should fold most of the time but if he reraises then fold

      or, call him and see flop

      It depneds on the villian and on your reads.

      If it's a 3bet monkey (he reraise you your steals very often) I would call and play him postflop IP. You will need decent postflop skills to that. If you aren't comtiable with with it there is nothing worng with a fold pf.

      If it's a tight guy with low 3bet pf % I would fold cause most of times his range has us crashed.

      4betting in that spot turns our hand into a bluff cause he isn't calling with worser hands so I would avoid it at those stakes.

      good luck.
