      Pre: Fine to open (not call) as long as your not going to go crazy on Axx flop. It's more to cooler people that are setmining and playing lower suited cards. Fold to raise.

      Flop: I would just check/raise the flop. BU hit that board a lot of the time, so will just get the money in. It's unlikely that he will barrel the turn with air if you check/call. But turn lots of turn cards are really ugly for him if he has a made hand. Is prob not giving up a good hand given stack sizes, but you never know. If BU has something like pocket 99-TT, your prob not getting any more money when you check/call flop anyway.

      ATs is a fine opening hand. But it can be an easy fold against stations.
      I would fold to his raise PF though, your OOP for the hand.

      This :)

      Not quite sure what justkyle88 meant by "it can be an easy fold against stations", but i agree with him on the rest.


      Hope it helps.
