      ***Hand 1***

      OnGame's Room No-Limit Hold'em, $1 BB (10 handed) by Hand Converter CG

      UTG+2 ($45.40)
      MP1 ($73.15)
      MP2 ($67.50)
      MP3 ($98.45)
      Hero ($12.30)
      Button ($46.05)
      SB ($12.60)
      BB ($27.50)
      UTG ($73.05)
      UTG+1 ($38.75)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K:diamond: , Q:spade: .
      2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.50, 3 folds, Hero raises to $2.5, 2 folds, BB calls $2, UTG+2 calls $2.

      Flop: ($7.75) 2:diamond: , 9:club: , 3:club: (3 players)
      BB folds, UTG+2 checks, Hero bets $5, UTG+2 raises to $10, Hero calls $4.80 (All-In).

      Turn: ($27.55) J:diamond: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($27.55) 4:club: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $27.55

      Since BB folded I am in HU situation and after my opp checks to me I conti bet. I called the re-raise because I felt pot committed (a bit more than 2/3 of my stack is in the pot) and given high pot odds (around 4.5:1).

      I analyzed the hand in Pokersove and my equity against a random opp is 45%, while against opponent with top 15% (which I consider fairly tight for NL 50) I am still 35% ahead. If i didn`t miss anything I made a right call here?

      ***Hand 2***

      OnGame's Room No-Limit Hold'em, $1 BB (9 handed) by Hand Converter CG

      BB ($109.75)
      UTG ($47.65)
      UTG+1 ($50.85)
      MP1 ($58.05)
      MP2 ($27.70)
      MP3 ($48.95)
      CO ($56.30)
      Hero ($8.50)
      SB ($50.00)

      Preflop: Hero is Button with 8:club: , 8:heart: .
      6 folds, Hero raises to $2, SB calls $1.75, 1 fold.

      Flop: ($4.50) T:club: , 4:diamond: , J:club: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $3, SB raises to $7, Hero calls $3.50 (All-In).

      Turn: ($18) A:spade: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($18) 3:club: (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Final Pot: $18

      Again marginal situation. Here I am getting 3:1 pot odds and my equity against 10%-15% range is 33%-36%, which is a very borderline call. I guess I will fold in this spot next time, unless I get 4:1 pot odds or my pair will represent at least middle pair.

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      And the general question on the similar hands is: if we are getting more than 4:1 pot odds to call, shouldn`t it be automatical call no matter what? In most cases we will have at least two overcards...

      1) first of all i´m a pussy so i would leave the table before i have to post the next bb even when i "only" have 12,30$
      in those situation i tend to fold mediocre hands like KQo preflop.

      if you think you are commited after your contibet gets raised i think you should push the flop right away for maximum foldequity.


      2) i think it´s a fold


      again: don´t take my answers too serious. i first have to get used to this sss stuff again

      Hand 1.)

      When you´re about to leave, I would fold that hand here as well, especially after a previous limper from UTG. We often only have only a coin flip here.

      Like played, I would play check/fold on the flop against 3 opponents, where you only have 2 Overcards and the pot is that big, that you only can push, when you bet.


      Hand 2.)
      Here I would fold after that raise as well. You could hold a J, a T, and OESD, Flushdraw, Two Pair, sometimes a slowplayed Overpair or a Set. And on the Turn you don´t want to see a ton of cards to appear.

      Berliner1982, why against 3 opponents in the firs hand? BB folded to me... So I guess there is only one left)

      Ah sorry, of course I mean against 2 opponents instead of 3. ;) My mistake. But that isn´t changing the evaluation.
