Hi NS,

No, this is not good, it's bad. The %'s you quote are good for sure, and if we could see his hole cards then a raising war would be awesome for us. Unfortunately we are not playing against these hole cards when the money is going in, we are playing against a range. Most of the time when our opponent wants to raise/get it in on the flop in a single raised pot they will have a range that is largely made up of premium pairs, 2 pair, sets, straights, and big draws.

Even if we knew he was loose enough to play 64o for a raise pre, it's still not good, because we also have to give him all the combos of 54,74,75,76,86 at least. We should definitely call and see the turn but reriasing/stacking it in is going to cost us money in the long run, even though once in a while we'll get a great result and be up against that 1 perfect hand in his range.
