Hey JHTAN,

It's very close if you could stack him every time you hit, might be even -EV because of the rake, so I would just fold this preflop and stick to call20 rule when deciding whether to setmine.

Best regards,

Hi burek,

I am not sure about the call 20 rule.
In this hand is \$0.65*20=\$13 or the amount Hero need to call that is \$0.35*20=\$7?

From the BSS guide:

WHAT DOES 'CALL 20' MEAN? When you play a small pair like 55 you are speculating on hitting three-of-a-kind on the flop. This only happens approx. 12% of the time, but when it does, you will have a very strong hand that can bring in a fair amount of money. This is why it's profitable to call a raise when holding a small pair, as long as your opponent has enough money to pay you off when you do hit. With a small pair, you should only call a raise, when your opponent has at least 20x the raise amount in his stack. By the way, this applies to you as well. You must also have 20x the raise amount. You can only win as much money as you have in your stack, so if your opponent has 20x the raise amount but you don't, it really doesn't help you. That is what the term 'Call 20' means.

You both need a \$0.65 x 20 = \$13 stack.
