      Preflop: Hero is CO with 5:heart: , 5:club:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 raises to $0.08, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.08, BU folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.06.

      Flop: ($0.34) 3:spade: , 5:spade: , A:heart: (4 players)
      SB checks, UTG2 checks, MP1 bets $0.14, Hero raises to $0.60, SB raises to $2.76 (All-In), 2 folds, Hero ?

      SB was a loose player, calling almost anything preflop. Can I call this big raise?

      Definitely call, you are ahead almost always, you are beaten by AA only and there are a lot of worse combos out there.

      It's a call, but don't expect to be greatly ahead. FDs with As and there is an unlikely straight out there. I would call this nevertheless.

      24o is also ahead. :(

      Well, that's not a hand you are going to usually see there, but I'm not surprised if guy with 73 vpip is capable of calling that
      pre. You still have outs against him and that's only one hand.
      I just noticed he's passive, but still we can't really fold this.
