Why do you think this? Originally Posted by lllusionist He's a thinking player and I thought he would only raise his SB with good multiway hands, knowing the pot would be 5 handed.

Then we can actually make them fold better. We can't just say he's barreling a range that makes 65 a good hand to raise with against him, but then flip the script and say we don't have the fold equity with QT to raise against him.

And those aren't folding, because you think the dude that shows up to limp T8o from MP is folding when he flops a gutterball? Yes this is at least not raising to "see where we're at", but this raise really doesn't accomplish much. Yes it's great when SB is barreling his AT and the other two fold behind us and he calls once and we get value, but is that really happening all that often?

And when they do fold to a raise behind, how often are they folding for just villain's original bet? We're overthinking this spot. We have an okay hand, so we call.
