      Hello nttrung143,

      Do you play with statistics to determine how loose/tight players are playing??

      On the Flop we hit TPTK and it really depends if BB is shoving KQ/QJ versus you. If he doesn't his range is more skewed towards 55,66,56s,8d7d,8d9d,3d4d which your equity is;

      Board: Q:diamond: 6:diamond: 5:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    85.20%  85.20%   0.00% { 66-55, 65s, 8d7d, 4d3d }
      UTG+1  14.80%  14.80%   0.00% { AsQc }



      Not very good :(

      IN the 2nd hand, we get check/raised on the Turn which is basically very strong so if we also look at the SHC, we have to bet/fold TP here but also JT & KQ has hit this turncard
