      Sapi17 checks, wacko101 bets $4.50, Sapi17 goes all-in $4.35


      My question is: is my turn play ok. Is it an ok call.

      Villain is playing 14/14/0.4 10% 3 bet but only over 22 hands so basically unknown.

      i feel his 3 bet range is probably. KJ+/KQs+/ 10s+.
      flop i feel he is betting essentially 100% of his range and is and obvious call.

      turn i feel he would bet any flush draw, any J and JJ+. running that through the equilab.

      Board: 5dJh4s9h
      Equity Win Tie
      MP3 60.05% 54.28% 5.77% { AsJs }
      SB 39.95% 34.18% 5.77% { JJ+, ATs+, KJs+, AKo, AJo, KJo }


      He bets half pot so i feel have 3:1 on my money and then need 25% equity to call so its correct?


      Is analysis ok and perceived range ok?

      You are giving him a very wide 3bet range out of position for an unknown coming from SB vs MP, even 6h. Id let it go until we get a better read, AJ can lead us to some real marginal spots, especially in 3bet pots.

      As played we aren't easily folding a TPTK after deciding to play it in a 3bet pot. I think we need to make most of our decisions on the flop here, we aren't likely to get a whole lot of help from the turn or river.

      We can take 5 paths from the flop -

      * fold - no way.
      * call flop, fold turn - giving money away to see if the villain loses his nerve? I don't think so.
      * call down 3 streets - this line sucks, the pot will be big enough for QQ+ to put us all-in by the river
      * raise-fold - this line sucks, though at least it lets us define our hand...
      * raise-broke - this line sucks as we isolate against JJ+, Jx.

      I think either of the last two is better than playing call-down.

      Since you raised UTG+1 I think fold pf is better.
      Once you called I think you can´t get away your hand, so I´d prefer shoving turn instead of calling him down
