      I like how I played this Hand, except the call preflop OOP, but the call on the river is fine, is that right? HEM tells me i need something like 21% equity for a call, which i dont have in case he has a random king, but the only Range i would give him because of the 3bet preflop is JJ+,AK, against which I have an exact equity of 22,19%. I know the spot is close but it isn't a big mistake is it?

      Hello abc794,

      Preflop: Fold the hand here. Not worth to continue. You can easily be far-far behind here against some better AQ/AK or even high PPs.

      As played
      Postflop: Why did you bet the turn so small? You just induced him to bluff you. That's the main problem what you should fix. And don't like the donk on flop either. What's your plan if you get raised there?

      Best regards.

      yeah thanks, i guess i have to work on my bet sizes in general, because i myself see a huge leak there aswell... i often give their draws to good odds or i just dont extract enough value... btw do you think a cbet percentage of 77% is profitable on NL2?

      Yep, profitable definitely. :) And not giving great odds for others to Call either.
