      $2.2
      Hero:
      $5.07

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with J:heart: , T:heart:
      5 folds, CO raises to $0.08, Hero calls $0.08, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0.19) J:diamond: , 9:diamond: , 7:club: (2 players)
      CO bets $0.14, Hero raises to $0.32, CO raises to $2.12 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $2.63

      Was this a bad raise on the flop? I was trying to protect, as overcard turn and rivers would mean I have to fold really.

      Do I have to call him after he shoves though?

      My equity against QQ+,AK,J7+,Adxd,T8 is 46.02%,

      I figure that I need 41%?: 1.80/(2.63+1.80)= .406

      Help me Veriz! I want to grasp this concept. :rolleyes:

      Hello Pilks7,

      True that you have a strong hand but why to raise with it? We have even showdown value here and of course GS. Rather just play it passively. We anyways making fold worse hands which we beat anyways by even calling. Also as you see you even don't have plan if you get 3bet here. :( We don't need fold equity here while we have great equity against any hand.

      Best regards.
