Now, if he had that top range of 12-14BBs then yes, he does have FE and would have a nice resteal/squeeze situation.
    Are we really gonna split BB's here? -technically/mathematically, of course, you're right. It may be a leak of mine to "loosen" these requirements. But at the micro's you see so much silly stuff like people folding for 200 chips in a 6k pot, I tend to feel I can get away with it.

    That's funny, I couldn't even see a re-steal at 12-14 big blinds. But of course I don't play the micros, so I wouldn't know.

    OK, I should have said, this guy was also hyper-aggressive post-flop too. Just checked and he was c-betting the flop 81% of the time (and then c-betting the turn 100% of the time).

    With that in mind I called the flop, intending to re-evaluate on the turn

    By re-evaluation, did you mean, see if you spike a 9 on the turn? Because you already know he's going to fire fourth street. Or did you mean, knowing he's going to fire any turn, you plan on shoving it down his throat when he does? Unless an overcard falls? Not sure what a flop call accomplishes for you that you didn't already know on the flop. What's going to change on the turn?

    I would have raised on the flop. I don't like the call.

    But I'm fully expecting Paddy to reveal that the villain had 72o.

    I'm just looking at the stacks. Generally speaking, the sweet spot for restealing is having a stack about 5-7 times the raise size. Of course, you have to take into account ranges of your opponent. The wider the gap between what he will raise/call with and raise/fold with is a big factor. Since this guy is more in EP than I'd like, I won't "resteal" without a good read that tells me he is raising wide and calling tight.

    True, if you see them doing it then yes, its viable. No argument here.

    Well shit, if this guy double barrels almost every time then I don't see why we don't raise the flop if we want to play the hand. Can this guy reraise us as a bluff? Usually not. I say on the flop its fold>raise>call.

    As played, I see no reason to continue. The K smashes his preflop range, if he didn't already have us beat. Sure, he might have AQ but he's giving us no reason not to believe him.

    OK, here's how the hand panned out - got myself in a bit of a pickle obviously...
