Hi Sadaus,

No, I don't think so. The SB isn't totally unknown, he's sitting with 56.4bb so he's probably a weaker player. With the small bet sizing you chose to c-bet (I would prefer about 2.50 here) he may well think his 1 pair hands are good or even be making a move with a bad draw or air. And the BB likewise can recognize this and call lighter, or even just not be able to fold hands like 99-JJ, 8x.

Sets are certainly a part of their ranges. But I don't think we can narrow them to exclusively better hands than ours, not enough to bet/fold on such a low stack to pot ratio.

Tweet this hand on Twitter using the Tweet button above for a chance to win a seat in the next $5,000 guaranteed Big Bang tournament. You MUST include #LearnPoker and @PokerStarsPSO in your tweet. Winners will be notified by email every Monday. Good luck!
