      This hand sucked >_>

      Opponents stats were 48/21/4.

      I can't really see any way of calling... Against someone who has been so passive to the river, then re-raising on that flush board, surely I'm beaten here?

      Tried working it out on equilator... If I give him a range: QQ, KJs+o, QTs+o, aq, ATs (I think he could play all of those hands with those stats) i get about 29% equity.

      Apparently for the odds to call I only need 27% equity. So was that a bad fold? Normally I would probably call it, but I'm trying to really improve my game, so it's calls like this which screw me over!

      Hello Jim4rdo,

      Basically against stations you can as well even bet bigger the flop & turn. But as played the river it's pretty marginal. We have to ask ourselves what hands do we beat? Might likely be only like QT because if he really had a hand like AT/A6/A3 I guess he would be inclined to raise it on turn or either flop.

      Therefore the Call on river is really close, I guess most likely if I would even do the Call is mostly it's for a note not that I really plan to win most of the time the hand. But as you decided to fold it, shouldn't be wrong either.

      Best regards.
