      Howdy,

      If you 3bet, make it more pre, like 0.16$.

      Cbetting that flop is fine, but I'd make a bit more, like 0.20$ and fold against his shove because we don't even have a nut redraw and he may easily have a hand like AdQx or something like that.

      Good luck!

      Hi, thanks for reply, ye I know I don´t have the nut redraw but the second, however, I still beat a lot if I redraw him right ?? And because he is all-in, with my call I will see 2 more streets, so I think I have pretty good chance catching-up.

      On the other hand, I probably have to discount some outs, because I don´t think that he would shove me without a flush or FD.

      Howdy,

      You need approx. 43% equity to make this call and against a range of this:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 37.715% 35.12% 02.60% 14602 1080.00 { AsKd }
      Hand 1: 62.285% 59.69% 02.60% 24818 1080.00 { QQ+, 66, 44, AcQc, AhQh, AsQs, KQs, QJs, JdTd, AdKc, AdKh, AdKs, AdQc, AdQh, AdQs, AdJc, AdJh, AdJs, AdTc, AdTh, AdTs, KQo }

      You see your equity yourself. And that's already pretty loose, if we really tighten this up and remove hands like QJ/JT etc. we come down to this:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 32.727% 29.57% 03.15% 9369 999.00 { AsKd }
      Hand 1: 67.273% 64.12% 03.15% 20313 999.00 { QQ+, 66, 44, AcQc, AhQh, AsQs, KQs, AdKc, AdKh, AdKs, AdQc, AdQh, AdQs, KQo }


      If we exclude small pockets (let's assume he won't call with them pre, although minraise/call may easily be one) and AA/KK (he 4bets them preflop) it improves our equity to 35%, but we're still short:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 35.318% 30.27% 05.05% 5994 999.00 { AsKd }
      Hand 1: 64.682% 59.64% 05.05% 11808 999.00 { QQ, AcQc, AhQh, AsQs, KQs, AdKc, AdKh, AdKs, AdQc, AdQh, AdQs, KQo }

      How do you think, what's his range for shoving? Some information about opponent helps, like has he done that before, how he plays postflop etc.

      Good luck!
