      Would you fold pre-flop? I was just hoping for a worse A but yeh probably most of the time i'm in -EV

      Hello ockerdoc,

      Not really against his stack. Well played! Unless I have a good reason to do that, I wouldn't fold.

      Best regards.

      I would never fold in this spot against such a short opponent who has a 3bet% of 5%, say it's TT+, AK, AQs then you have 42.87% equity, you lose 0.45 if you fold, you have to pay 2.84 to win 6.63. Against this range it's around BE to do it. Also if you exclude the TT. If you exclude AQs it becomes a -EV play.

      Actually against some SSS players we might sometimes consider fold be better. :) But not against this one definitely!
