      Final Pot: $3,55


      On turn I put BU on this:

      Board: T:heart: 9:spade: 4:spade:  J:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG+2  64.24%  59.63%   4.62% { AJs, KJs+, QJs, J8s+, J4s, 87s, AJo, KJo+, QJo, J8o+ }
      MP1    35.76%  31.14%   4.62% { AhJd }

      I decided to call on turn. Due to odds I have to be ahead 22%. On the river my stack was too small, didn't noticed it at the table. I wanted to let him bluff with weaker hands.

      So, should I have folded on turn or take it to showdown this way?

      Hey JohnDoe,

      Counting with only 22% equity needed is false because if you call on the turn you commit to the pot also the rest of your stack. Therefore you should count with 33.6% needed equity.

      Because of the drawy board I only see fold or shove as an option on the turn. And I would decide to fold because majority of players won't raise draws or medium strong hands, but very strong hands alone.

      Best regards,
