      Hero bets $0.40, UTG+2 raises to $3.40, CO folds, Hero?

      Villain is unknown. I think his range is set or flush because he raises so big on the Flop. I just muck my two pairs. Do you think this is a good fold?

      Thanks.

      Hey JHTAN,

      In my opinion it's quite a close fold. I don't think he has too many sets in his range, but he can have KK+, KQ AQ if he decides to limp them preflop. Just as he can have made flushes and 99, because 66 is quite unlikely because of you blocker. Folding for 45BB is fine, but going all-in wouldn't be much of mistake either.

      Best regards,

      Hello burek,

      So it is a easy call with 30bb?
      How about 80bb or 100bb?

      Thanks.

      Hey JHTAN,

      Here I give you some info from equilator...

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 43,784% 42,422% 2,723% 54,855% Qc6c
      Player 2: 56,216% 54,855% 2,723% 42,422% QQ+, 99, 66, AdKd, AQs, AdJd, AdTd, Ad8d, Ad7d, Ad5d, Ad4d, Ad3d, Ad2d, KQs, JdTd, Td8d, 8d7d, 7d5d, 5d4d, AQo, KQo

      You see with 30BB and less you can usually go broke, but with more I would tend to fold. I also like to have some reserve when I go broke so I am on the safe side because you can never 100% correctly estimate villain's ranges.

      Another thing to consider is that if you have bigger stack size then villains will be more careful and usually raise you on the flop with tighter range because with bigger stack size you can hurt their stack much more.

      Best regards,
