      Villain had exactly what I put him on. Should I have laid this down after his re-raise? I'm not sure if pot odds were good enough for me here....

      Looks like the converter hasn't quite worked. Heros stack is only 2.45, so he couldn't have raised to 2.95.

      How can you put villain on a hand pre-flop on-line? I hardly imagine how you can do it offline, but I saw guys on HSP doing it)

      What you can do is to put him on a range of hands and figure out your equity against this range.

      Thanks xylere, that's really what I meant. After his r/r, I put him on QQ/KK/AA or AK.

      Should I go for the coin-flip knowing I'm at best drawing for a split pot? When I called I knew I was a slight underdog, but I thought my pot odds were around 2, 2.5-1 so I called. Is that enough in a situation like this?

      Thanks for all the input guys!

      Again, how do you know his range? without statistics it is just guessing. We can make assumptions, for instance, I would say that on average the tightest possible range you can put him on is TT+, AQs+, AQo+ (given the limit and 1 coldcaller). Our equity against this range is 49%, while we need 40%.
