    Hi sapines1001

    Folding this hand preflop would be weak! We can come in for a raise but our sizing ought to be somewhere around the 2.5x mark or even a min raise. When we 3x it like this from early position we scare away a lot of the hands we beat and we're also going to create a bloated pot.

    With our 21 big blind stack we won't have much room to play post flop as it is so when we 3x it like we did here we will have even less room to maneuver than what we would have done if we would have put in a smaller raise.

    Cheers, Chris.
