      hi daisuke - flush draws and a possible straight on that board... i'd be most worried about SB cos he's the postflop aggressor however the pot bet looks like hand protection against draws so he probably had a made hand or something like AK... BB just looks like a fish very passive.. i think you played it okay but im no master!

      Hello daisuke,

      You have a monsterhand on a drawheavy board. the SHC tells us that we have to bet/raise this hand here. Against made straights, we still have equity since we hit our full house for example

      Best regards,

      in this limits, a set is a very powerfull hand, this is a nice shove!

      cause many players will call with a lot of pp's, draws and even over cards

      Gerv is right, of course. The only hands you would be behind against are 99 (3 hands) or a made straight (48 hands, many of whom are very unlikely to have reached the flop. Even against a made straight you have between 30% and 36% of equity depending on how many hearts villain has.

      All other hands (which are more likely) you are ahead (eg 92% against top pair with the ace of hearts, 85% against AA with a heart, 71% against a Th8h, 61% against an OESD+flush draw (because of your outs to a full house), even 55% against a flush draw and straight draw with the 8h (2 hands).
