      MP3 ($6.95)
      CO ($10.95)
      Button ($12.95)
      SB ($11.45)
      Hero (BB) ($12.20)

      UTG+1 ($10.05)
      MP1 ($12.65)
      MP2 ($14.45)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 7, 8
      7 folds, SB bets $0.40, 1 fold

      Total pot: $0.20 | Rake: $0


      VPIP: 9

      As his stats show, villain is usually stealing, but with suited connectors, is a resteal possible? TAG regs usually know when to lay down a hand, they often try to steal and depending on my hole cards I resteal, but what about this hand? Calling is probably the worst to do in this case.

      I think, that all posibilities are possible with your hand.

      Fold: Villain raises only 6%.
      Call: Outplay him postflop or you can hit very hard with your hand and it's hidden.
      Raise: Villain can't call your 3-bet oop so he either has to fold or to 4-bet where you can fold savely.

      You can mix these posibilities to balance your hands.
      Against that villain I guess I would call and play ip.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      Assuming he's always raising 4x when he steals SBvsBB and he's doing it often (some players will steal a lot from CO/BU but will be very tight from the SB) i probably wouldn't fold that hand, it plays good in position and your opponent will find himself without a hand postflop often. It's especially profitable to call if you're willing to raise or float some of his c-bets, as he will usually just shutdown at least the first few times you do it.

      If i had A4o or another trashy hand like that i'd be more likely to just 3bet him preflop, as it's not strong enough to see a flop against most people.

      Hope it helps.
