Default Uggh...Caught stealing again

Should I even be stealing blinds with hands like these at 3/6, where the rake can kill?


Party Poker 3/6 Hold'em (8 handed) converter

Preflop: Hero is Button with A[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 5[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].

SB checks, BB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets</font>, SB calls, BB folds.

Turn: (4 BB) J[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(3 players)</font>

I check the turn, call any river if he's aggressive.

I think the value of betting the turn in getting villain to fold sometimes right here and not pick up a river card that can beat you slightly outweighs the advantages to checking the turn, but I'll take both of these approaches from time to time.

That really depends on the type of aggressive he is. If he is likely to checkraise that board on a bluff as well as with a made hand, I am checking the turn and calling most rivers.

But there are a lot of aggressive players who really don't bluff enough IMO. Misplaced aggression I guess. And against these sorts (which most aggressive 3/6 players are) I bet the turn.
