Hey MolaSalo

Imo this boils down to the reads or stats we have on our opponents. Overall I would think that folding is best but if I believe that I can get the pot heads up and that there's a chance my cards will be live then I would get it in some of the time.

What we have to remember is that we only have 9 big blinds so we don't have much fold equity so I expect to be called all the time.

Against a 12/11 with a large sample size I would fold because it's unlikely that we will have 2 live cards against this guys range and we will often be drawing to 3 outs. I would much prefer to get it in against a 20/18 type of guy so that way there is a chance that we actually have the best hand.

If we do decide to cram it in middle I would hope that player 9 iso raises so at least that way we are heads up with a ton of dead money rather than 3 way.

Cheers, Chris.
