What's the most profitable way to play this hand?
Correct Answer: Re-raising
Re-raising is probably the best possible way to play this. Calling is probably the least profitable, because you simply will not see a showdown enough to make this hand profitable. Re-raising is the best because it gives you the initiative in the hand and you have a decent "three-bet light" hand. It’s extremely difficult to play vs. three-bets out of position so three-betting on the button is a very profitable play.
