      Pre-flop because 0.6/2.45 is like 25% equity. Post-flop picks up a gutshot + nut flush draw. Should i be calling it down or getting all-in immediately? against any overpair + pair im still 55% fav. not sure if i did the right thing

      Good play, we are getting the odds we need (actually more than we need, so its a plus EV). Result wont matter. Nice play!

      Hello fl4m3r,

      Preflop: I'd actually just fold it preflop for the given reason that I don't want to go broke with just FD on flop and that is what often will happen, the pot will be too big to just satisfy the Call, rather shipping would be better to gain some fold equity.
      Postflop: And that's what happened although we also have a GS, therefore ain't that wrong, although I don't see him folding that often an overpair here. Nice hand!

      Best regards.
