      Hello, I have just started playing SSS a bit more. I'm struggling with AK-AQ type of hands on a low/missed board against one villain. Here's an example.

      Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em, $1 BB (10 handed) by Hand Converter CG

      MP2 ($102.73)
      Hero ($20.40)


      Preflop: Hero is CO with Q:diamond: , A:club: .
      UTG folds, UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 folds, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $1, MP3 calls $1, [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $6[/color], Button folds, SB folds, BB folds, MP2 calls $5, MP3 folds.

      Flop: ($14) 4:heart: , 2:club: , 4:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      MP2 checks, Hero ?

      Villain is 35.8/7.7/1.2 over a large sample. Is it profitable here to bet (any bet commits us, so it's definitely AI), he is basically calling with any PP and we're drawing to 6 outs (don't mind the nut backdoor flush draw, pretend that we have just A high). Even on a flop like T82, villains call down light with any PP basically.

      If you have the read that he will call here in most of the times, then checkbehind and hope to pick up one of your Outs on the Turn. If you see a chance that he will fold more often, the make a C-Bet.

      I guess if I had that read, I wouldn't be posting this question ;)
      Anyway, yesterday the same occasion concurred twice on a relative low paired flop. Both times I pushed and was called by flush draws. So some of the villains are willing to call even with flush draws along their PP's. So I guess it's really villain dependent.

      What about if we are first to act?

      I always have the "limed-called pf" stat overlayed onto the table which gives a clue as to how likely villain is to be playing a small PP. I know this is not much but it helps.

      If you raised on the BB or SB, on that flop I would go all-in against single opponent. His hand range should be only poscket pairs and you have backdoor flush draw+ 6 outs, hard to believe that someone limp/calls with A4s.

      I agree here with Kaitz, unless you have other reads on your opponent.

      I stated that we have just A high and rule out the backdoor flush draw.
      And I don't really agree that someone with 36 VPIP is calling with ONLY pocket pairs, this is way off. He's calling with way more hands here.

      Nunki: Thanks about that, but I don't use PT, so I don't have that stat ;)
