      Button is a known blindstealer. I really didn't know what to do after his reraise on the flop, and I guess I overplayed the hand pretty badly. What to do in a situation like this? Fold?

      If we assume that villain is folding his trashier stealing hands PF (and that you have not been playing like a maniac) then I would imagine that the only time you are good on this flop after villain's smallish raise is if villain is holding A-K/Q :spade: :spade: .

      Hi Timor83!

      I would fold here on the flop. Although he is a known blind stealer he can easily have an overpair here. You only beat a flush draw or pure bluff. Wait for a better spot to stack him.

      Good luck at the tables!
