Yes absolutely! Hero has some pot equity in the form of 10 outs when Villain does continue with top
pair type hands and still has four outs against strong overpairs and even sets.

Hero also has zero showdown value with this hand and so I'm struggling to find many better candidate
hands to be part of our intentionally wide bluffing range.

You might be wondering what's with the small sizing. Well, let's recap our aims here. We're
exploitatively overbluffing this flop. Since most of our range is a bluff and simply wants fold equity,
again we're catering to the bulk of it by improving our risk/reward ratio and reducing our old friend
RFE (required fold equity).

Using the RFE milestones, we know that this risk of 8BB to win a pot of 8BB only needs to work
50% of the time if we had no equity. Since we do have equity, however, we need even less folds than
RFE suggests and can expect an abundance of folds from a wide range and weak player. This sizing is
great for us and going bigger wouldn't make sense.

Good, now onto the next hand.

Pre-flop: Hero could elect to 3-bet this hand for value, but with the presence of the Fish in the BB he
wants to flat more of his thinner value hands in order to play pots with this weaker player in position
and capitalize on his mistakes post-flop, but sadly the Fish folds. Even players with 46% VPIPs can
be dealt 72o.

Flop: As we're against a Reg, we care about balance and so Hero's first task is to decide if he wants
a raising on this flop in the first place.

Q1. Does Hero want a raising range?

1. Range Advantage: This time Villain's monopoly on the big overpairs doesn't guarantee him clear
range advantage like in Hands 64 and 65. This is due to the board being much wetter. An overpair
like QQ isn't such a mighty hand on this texture where two pair, sets and straights are possible in both
