      After my opponent bets .85 on the flop can I get him to fold Tx's and underpairs or draws? I thought I could.

      Opponent 38/8/8.33 over 50 hands so played him as an unknown as I dont think reading into stats over a small sample is a good idea.

      I put his range on FD's 22+, Tx's, Overpairs, mid-low pairs. As well as some bluffs and semi bluffs like draws AX KX that he DB's the flop with.

      If I put my opponent all in do we use the same equity calc, i.e

      amount to call / total pot including our bet = sum x 100 = equity?

      , so in this instance it would be:

      2.94/6.73= 0.45 x 100 = 43%

      Against the above range I am ahead anyway but just interested to know if the maths is correct? Even against the worst case scenarios only

      i.e sets nut/higher flush draws, sets and overpairs etc

      I am still like 40%

      After I pair the 9 on the turn I guess this would be a pretty standard bet/push on the turn if it had not gone bet/raise/call on the flop and instead had been check/call or bet/call?

      Hello muel294,

      First of all, against short-stacks you can even raise smaller, $0,30. And if I am planning to ship it then do it on flop, to get more fold equity, but likely what doesn't matter since he is betting into us that big, he will likely Call the shove anyways. But still shove it on flop. And yes, your equity calculation is right, I'd say we need 44% equity to make it profitable. And we near that get, against worst case, unless we put him directly only on set. But wouldn't wrong either, if you just fold it there to avoid variance. :)

      Best regards.

      I intended to put him all in on the flop but didnt bet right but I think I essentially put him all in
