      Hello!

      Equilate your range versus 2pairs, pair+FDs, overpairs and 2) check your pot odds so you can determine & understand whether you can call here

      I personally think that bet/folding here is a mistake math wise but I want you to understand it so doing these exercises is probably the best advice

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      Yeah, I have good enough equity against that range (35.7%) and pot odds are less than 25% but my major concern is sets. I'm losing 50% of my pots at showdown against sets(and fullhouses), 35% against flushdraws and 15% against two pairs, and they always make that move : call flop/raise turn when I'm committed, even when flop is scary. :f_frown:
