      ---

      PF: This table has been tight for awhile now so I decided to steal the BB.

      vs raise: I think villain knows what I'm doing here, so I think he is reraising loose against me.

      BB is 17/15/55 VPIP/PFR/AFq after 276 hands

      Hey kenthmp,

      there is an UTG limper which you might have missed when you posted the hand and this makes this hand OOP isolation and not a steal, so your range will be much tighter than it would be if you were stealing from SB, so I think it's safe to give up here, because BB won't raise you so loose here.

      However, if there was no limper and you did in fact steal from SB, then you should raise 4BB or 3BB even better and take a look at villain's foldBB2steal % to see how often he defends his blinds. If he doesn't defend then you could give up the hand, but if he does and you steal quite often then you can go broke with ATs in BvB.

      Regards,
