      Hello people,
      This one hand I played has caused a serious debate between me and my friend. It's on micro limits, so don't expect anything exciting, but I would just like to know, whether I made the right call.

      Board: [9s 4h 3h 3d Qd]
      Seat 1: Wh0_Iz_Lucky_4 didn't bet (folded)
      Seat 2: SiBUR90 didn't bet (folded)
      Seat 3: Shpaggin showed [Ad Ks] and lost with a pair of Threes
      Seat 4: Klinke1985 is sitting out
      Seat 5: slimjimpunx (button) didn't bet (folded)
      Seat 6: Crodan (small blind) folded before the Flop
      Seat 7: ufesz (big blind) folded before the Flop
      Seat 8: Gaga_game showed [Kh Qs] and won ($2.50) with two pair, Queens and Threes
      Seat 9: paiuivan didn't bet (folded)


      I think I should add, that I have seen the player play before and knew he played a wide range (as evidenced by the second time I played all in against him with pocket nines and he had K6o).

      Thank you for any advice or opinions.

      Hello Spaghett,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      First of all would like to ask you if he has been shipping a lot of hands. As I understand you played against him already but did he shove with K6 at that time as well? If so then likely can even consider Calling with AK here. Although if rather not and he plays rather such a play that with very strong hands shove then it's a fold.

      Best regards.

      Thanks for the answer,
      well he gave the impression of being a really bad player, for example he played 4,6o and shoved all in on the turn with nothing but a pair of fours on a board with a king, jack and a seven... but to answer your second question the K6 play came after this one.

      But really, what I wonder about the most is, if he had a VPIP of about 65% and I saw him go all in with the fours and so on, if AK is a good enough hand to try and take him out.

      The VPIP doesn't tell much about his preflop shoving range. Take into account his PFR that's what shows what kind of shoving range he could have if he usually only shoves with all the hands.
