      Hello alexgrapid,

      Yeah and you can't even put only QQ into his range, you can likely even put wider range vs him like this:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 39,882% 39,882% 0,000% 60,118% AcJc
      Player 2: 60,118% 60,118% 0,000% 39,882% QQ+, 88, AQs, KQs, AQo, KQo

      And sometimes even wider, might add as well draws. :) Other option would be just to Check/Fold and not take the flip at all.

      Best regards.

      Hello veriz & alexgrapid.

      Nice hand and as well a good example for my question.
      Villain is 55/0/2 VPIP PFR AF. Regardless he only opens for 2BB's pre, it's the first time he does it, his stats make me think that he's just a calling station but his AF isn't that high and I'm not sure he's shoving lot of hands there.

      If I face such situation .vs villain with fullstack, I'd strongly consider folding to his shove there unless I have some kind of reads, history of showdown hands etc..etc..


      Any thoughts, Veriz ?

      Obviously, against full stack we have to fold it there. And also about the passiveness I'd say that we don't have enough of hands.
