      Firstly, I cold cald a min raise with 5 other cold callers - mistake, or ok?

      When villain bets the pot on the flop, I decided to call and re-evaluate on the turn - was this a bad call?

      On the turn, when villain bets 1/2 pot, I feel like he is weak, so shove.

      I have attempted to use Equilab to analyse (I'm not really very good with Equilab), and think I might be at least 60/40 favourite, do you agree, and is this enough to make the shove?

      Ummm, I´d rather fold it preflop, ye we can ofcourse say that we have nice odds to call, but the hand itself can´t hit much, if it was suited it´s snap call :D . But JKo, the best you can hope for is top pair with a vague kicker and that´s not exactly it in multiway pot ;)

      And also I wouldn´t really say that you are very big favourite against his range on the flop when he bets pot. Call is close imo, as you can´t really fold your TP as it was your goal to hit when you called preflop (right) and FD, but shoving turn seems to be overplayed.

      Hello Iolar,

      Preflop: Depends what are you Calling for? If you are trying to go broke with TP type of hand then I would rather prefer to fold it right preflop and avoid any difficult spots.

      As played
      Flop: I guess I would just fold the hand right here, while we could easily be already drawing dead against some flush type of hand.

      As played if flop was Called
      Turn: Kinda close, he could easily trying us to invite to join the pot and forcing us to Call with some Kx type of hand and I guess I would just fold the hand still here.

      Best regards.

      was his call ok against my range?

      Likely not. :D But likely he went for flush. Obviously his play doesn't make sense at all. Definitely note down those opponents how he did overplay his QQ even on such a board. Easy money next time. :)
