      River: ($3.58) 3 (2 players, 2 all-in)

      Total pot: $3.58 | Rake: $0.23

      SB- unknown. I thought that he would have raised 44 or 88 preflop, folded 48, so in my opinion his range consisted mostly of flush draws and weak Kx hands. I didnt want to give him any more cards and thought that I am ahead here.

      Should I have played differently? :)

      Hello IflopMonsters,

      I wouldn't say that he is always raising there the 44 or 88-s. He may easily as well just limp them. Overall it shouldn't be that big mistake to go broke there for the reason that those players are just so bad on those limits. They may easily as well raise there with Kx type of hands, and also the guy doesn't have even full stack.

      And for example against some sets+pairs+draw, we have even better equity:
      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 59,157% 58,735% 0,843% 40,422% AhKd
      Player 2: 40,843% 40,422% 0,843% 58,735% 88, 44, KJs+, 6c5c, KJo+

      Although that's true that often times such a line is pretty strong and sometimes I even find a fold if I know the opponent better.

      Best regards.
