      Hello,

      was my preflop call +EV? The 3bet is not small and I'm OOP, but so many players called that I had good odds.

      Thanks!

      Hello Dback357,

      Yeah, you are getting almost 15:1 preflop so your implied odds ain't that horrible. Even being OOP.

      Best regards.

      I'm still new to this, and not a hand evaluation expert... however, I had this EXACT same problem in a recent hand. Though it was 88 as opposed to 77.

      I should have folded to such a strong re-raise as I didn't have a read on my opponent yet, nor did I have position. And with such a mid-range pocket pair the likelihood is that the flop would have you beaten. With only two outs at this stage I shouldn't have called.

      (This is only with hindsight, because I made the call. The flop was A 8 3 of differing suits.... I 3-bet raised all-in, and was beaten with three-of-a-kind As :f_frown: )

      Set vs overset is quite unlucky, but I still think the situation is profitable in the long run.

      My only problem in this hand was that I was OOP and it's harder to extract value postflop if I hit if I'm OOP. For example, the original raiser would need a monster to cbet against so many opponents and even if he does, he might let his hand go if I show agression (if he's not a donk). This is the reason why I was thinking for quite some time before calling.

      Why should you be sorry? :) Any posts are welcome and feel to discuss the hand as well even if I did post an answer.
