      So I got midhand and I figure I want to try relatively passively to try and get as much in the pot as possible with my hand but I've completely forgotten Equity. What do I do? I basically give Villain a range of Sets, or possibly Two-Pair if he's crazy, maybe he can have a sort of pair + FD as well. Thoughts?

      I guess this is the worst range I could hope to be against;

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 26.320 % 26.320 % 0.000 % 73.680 % Ad2d
      Player 2: 73.680 % 73.680 % 0.000 % 26.320 % QQ-JJ, 99, KdJd, QJs, JTs, QJo, JTo

      Shove flop? That feels like I'm isolating myself against better, I really am not sure mid-hand with this stuff now, feeling very rusty suddenly.

      Edit; I guess I just need practice and work out these hands after they happen. Calculating Pot Odds and estimating Equity in my head again is going to take some time I think.

      Hello DaPhunk,

      Shoving doesn't bring us much anyways. Rather take the good odds and even keep another player in the pot as well. But I'd rather be inclined to fold it on turn vs such a shove, our equity ain't that great there anymore.

      Best regards.
