      Pacific Poker - $0.06 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $5.01
      CO: $1.20
      Hero (BTN): $6.00
      SB: $11.58
      BB: $2.30

      SB posts SB $0.03, BB posts BB $0.06, CO posts DB $0.06

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:spade: A:spade:

      UTG calls $0.06, CO checks, Hero raises to $0.33, fold, BB raises to $2.30, fold, fold, fold

      i did calculation, i would need 41,47% equity for break even call. if i put villain on range of JJ+,AKs,AKo i have 42,80%, so call? i have no stats on villain, but am assumeing he's a fish and his range could possibly be wider 99+,AKs,AKo, against which i get 44%. should i have called?

      Hello tofu22,

      We need ~42% equity here and against your given range we almost get it. It's pretty much a break-even Call because of the rake. But overall if we even put him a bit looser range and not only the strong one, might even be with AQ if we take him as a loose player then you can even Call here if you want to take the flip, which is of course a bit bigger variance. :)

      Best regards.
