      Dealt to Hero T:heart: T:spade:

      fold, fold, UTG+2 calls $0.50, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $2, fold, Hero raises to $6, fold, BTN calls $4

      FLOP ($12.75) A:diamond: 3:diamond: 9:club:

      Hero ?

      BTN's stats,


      Hello,
      The pot on Flop is $12.11. Hero has $14 left. SPR is 14/12.11=1:1.156
      what you will do on Flop with pocket Ts?
      I guess bet 1/2 pot and fold to raise but is that okay with this SPR?
      how about if SPR is less than 1?

      thanks.

      Yes your 3bet sucks because of the given SPR ;) Try to size it better next time

      His call 3bet range only consist of AQ that has you beat in fact so combowise it ain't that much.

      It all depends if he is bluffing a lot when you check with hands you beat so no 99, JJ+

      I would be better safe than sorry in this case so I shove it in here to fold out better hands, get calls from FD in which you are still ahead of since we do not know if he is bluffig with the range we want by checking

      Betting small allows him to call a bit wider so you give up versus a worse hand ont he Turn + he gets cheaper odds

      Hey Gerv, :)

      how much will you 3bet preflop? and do you 3bet/call?
      we need about 35% equity to call 4bet shove.
      this villain's stats looks nitty,

             Equity     Win     Tie
      SB     67.31%  67.11%   0.21% { QQ, AKs }
      BB     32.69%  32.48%   0.21% { TT }


      do you mean 3bet larger, so, the SPR is <1 and then shove any Flop?

      thanks.

      If I 3bet to $7 , I get >2:1 anyways so I am not 3bet/fold but 3bet/shoving

      And I make my SPR <1
