      - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      MP+1: $15.74
      CO: $10.57
      BTN: $12.68
      SB: $3.25
      BB: $10.00
      UTG: $8.92
      Hero (UTG+1): $19.74
      MP: $10.00

      SB posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has T:heart: 9:heart:

      UTG calls $0.10, Hero raises to $0.40, MP calls $0.40, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.30, UTG calls $0.30

      Flop: ($1.65, 4 players) 4:heart: 7:heart: 8:club:
      BB checks, UTG bets $1.60, Hero raises to $19.34 and is all-in, MP calls $9.60 and is all-in, fold, fold

      Turn: ($22.45, 2 players) 2:diamond:

      River: ($22.45, 2 players) Q:diamond:

      First reaction in this hand was frustration because I thought that I made a big mistake when I shoved all my chips to the pot. But from mathematical point of way it was good move because...
      If I only called... the pot would be 4.85$ and MP would reraise to 9.60$(all in) so (4.85+1.60+8+8)\8= 35%
      The chance to win this hand is 40% so it is profitable call
      Am I right?

      Hello BGawli,

      Preflop: I wouldn't really advice you to play such hands from UTG, you just putting yourself into difficult spots and as well very often will be OOP.

      As played
      Postflop: That's pretty sick when the UTG pots in this situation. He will like so often have a very strong hand here but while we have a OESD+FD I guess shouldn't be like very wrong to go broke on flop. Although I would be more often inclined to raise it to like $4 and then go broke.

      But if you raise it to like $4,85 then when the MP ships it, then you are even getting better equity. Pot will be like 22,45 with his shove plus your Call and / by your Call = ~$21% equity since you only have to Call like $4,75, don't know how you get the $8 and yes, then it's profitable.

      Best regards.
