      On this spot, my hand is enough to shove, and if not,
      what should I have done?

      Hello Gonchan,

      Against his stack rather fold it preflop. :) But as played nothing much to add, you pretty much hit your dream-flop vs his stack I am shipping it as well.

      Best regards.

      With top set I am not going anywhere here. And definitely going broke as well. Nice hand! He may easily have even overpairs, worse sets.

      Best regards.
      I think you missread this one, he has 98, not 99 ;)

      For the hand: well if he is only doing this with sets or overpairs, you have around 40% equity. And becouse he is probably never folding, you need around 40% equity to make this breakeven. I think both, folding and shoving are fine, but folding is better because he is not always raising here with overpairs.

      Oh yeah, evaluating while drunk ain't good. :D Thanks! But against his stack we can still easily go broke. :) But it should be rather a fold preflop. :D
