Default Who likes this line when openraising from the small blind?

Only been at the table for 10 hands, no substantial reads.
Do I raise with any 2 playable here?
Do I keep the pressure on...

Party Poker 3/6 Hold'em (6 max, 5 handed) converter

Preflop: Hero is SB with 3[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises</font>, BB calls.

Flop: (4 SB) 3[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, BB calls.

Turn: (3 BB) 2[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, BB folds.

Final Pot: 4 BB

Maybe if the BB is outrageously passive and likes to fold just abuot everything you can do this, but 99% of the time I'm folding 36o here. Odds are that he's ahead of you preflop, and you will be out of position postflop.

I can't see this being +EV against an average opponent.

if you make the raise you have to follow up on the flop and turn. With that said, I fold this pf.

This is mainly due to the fact that if you openraise every hand from the sb, the bb will start calling you down with Q high - ruining your fold equity.

show that you can fold though, and a BB has to put a lot more thought into continuing when the flop whiffs him though.

I'm not openraising any two in the sb until I have a read.

I like both discussions (learning a lot about the pf), but I was mostly wondering about the flop/turn line when openraising from the SB and getting a small piece.

Standard on flop and turn. Preflop is bad most of the time as you know.

This raise is goddamn stupid with 1/3 blinds and the rake at Party 3/6 as high as it is.

There are many hands I try to steal with...and 3 6 is definitely not one of them. Glad it worked out for you.
