      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.102 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BB with 8:heart: , 7:heart:
      UTG1 folds, UTG2 raises to $0.30, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.30, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.95) 8:diamond: , 7:club: , 3:spade: (3 players)
      Hero bets $0.72, UTG2 calls $0.72, MP3 folds.

      Turn: ($2.39) J:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.82, UTG2 raises to $8.98 (All-In), Hero calls $7.16.

      River: ($20.35) A:heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $20.35

      Called out of BB for cheap 3way value.

      My big question here - do we find the hero call on the turn? Villain is 12-6 but over a handcount which basically renders that "read" useless.

      Hello Jaissica,

      Yeah but the problem is that we practically only beat some overpairs here. :( Might at the best be JT which went for a GS on flop. But would he ship like this? Also I rarely doubt that passive player would overplay their overpairs like this.

      Pretty hard decision and where I might even be towards Bet/Folding. The thing is, if we even put him on some wider range. Then of course we could consider even going broke here. We need ~35% equity for break-even Call. We get against some wider range:

      Board: 8:diamond: 7:club: 3:spade:  J:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    60.71%  60.71%   0.00% { JJ+, 88-77, 33, T9s, T9o }
      UTG+1  39.29%  39.29%   0.00% { 8h7h }

      This one, so shouldn't be a problem. But can we expect him to have such a hand? Would he overplay his overpairs?

      Best regards.
