      Ignoring he result, can you give me a hand on how I should be approaching these situations?

      Whats my likley equity on the flop if I do chose to ship?

      How would you reccomend playing the hand?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $3.44
      BU:
      $1.8

      0.01/0.02 No-Limit Hold'em (4 handed)

      well with the BU limp before you maybe it was better to just fold and not raise and be out of possition with a marginal hand cause in most of the times you hit the flop its hard to now if you are good or not. at the flop there is not need to raise for me (you dont even have a spade) you could just call and try to reach the showdown as cheaply as possible and fold to any more resistance...

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Well, the first problem here is that would he like ever even raise with just TP here? Is he really that kind of maniac tendency. Against some kind of range which might even consist of AxX we are pretty much flipping anyways.

      Although obviously if we are putting him on a bit wider range, I didn't add anything. he could obviously even ship with wider flushes:

      Board: A:spade: 7:spade: 2:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    51.65%  41.55%  10.10% { Ad7c }
      UTG+1  48.35%  38.26%  10.10% { 77, 22, AJs, A7s, A2s, QsJs, AhTh, JsTs, 9s8s, 6s5s, 5s4s, A7o, A2o, AcJs, AcTs }

      We are pretty much flipping. :) If you like that kind of variance then why not. :P Although according his line I doubt that it's some weaker hand. He is even raising rather stronger and wants to somehow protect his hand.

      Best regards.
