Strategy Question

Strategy time for everyone. This one is fairly simple. What do you do?

(Note: I deleted starting stacks for the 7 folds as it doesn't pertain to the hand)
Full Tilt No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (9 handed) -
Full-Tilt Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com
SB ($19.19)
Hero (BB) ($10.59)
Preflop: Hero is BB with J, 8
7 folds, SB bets $0.20, Hero ???


  1. Isn't this stat / villain dependent? If villain has a steal north of 40%, 3bet the sucker. You'll know pretty quickly where you are.

  2. Sorry, should have mentioned no prior reads or stats. Assume it's rush poker.

  3. Given Rush, this is probably an auto-raise to 3x (assuming 10nl). Push it up to .60 - if he over-the-tops you, fold. Flat, re-evaluate the flop.

  4. I fold.

    You have position but that's it. Your hand is terrible.

    Until you have some stats on the guy you are better off giving it up with such a weak hand.
