This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: 3-bet pot SB vs CO within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; I had no info on villain. I thought about raising flop but I didn't want to raise flop and get 3-bet putting our hand in
I had no info on villain. I thought about raising flop but I didn't want to raise flop and get 3-bet putting our hand in a tough spot. I also wasn't sure without reads if villain would call the flop raise with JJ-88. If he doesn't call with his under-pairs and only calls with like QTs+, sets and FD's our hands equity drops below 50% when we raise. Is calling flop standard? what do you think about the hand?
below are pictures of our hands equity when called One picture has JJ and TT included keeping our equity decent, the other is when villain folds out his PP's weaker than Qx
Do you think it would be a big deal to raise flop? call flop? what do you think of turn and river? thanks in advance!

P: we can think about raise/folding vs 3bet with reads. Unknowns in nl2 3bet for value only very often. SB is a weak player: 81bb stack and goofy 3bet sizing. I make a nitty fold, especially since SB 3bet ranges are tighter than BB 3bet ranges. Raise/calling is ok.
F: as played, easy call vs small bet. Almost never raise in this spot: villain has range advantage and we are owning ourselves very often, eg villain can have all overpairs but we can't.
T: I make nitty check-back. Betting is ok, but I check-back because if I bet I want much bigger sizing.
