      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.80)
      BB ($2.19)
      UTG ($2.04)
      UTG+1 ($0.90)
      Hero ($2.06)
      CO ($2.24)
      BTN ($0.71)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: Q:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.06, CO calls $0.06, fold, SB calls $0.05, fold

      FLOP ($0.20) 3:heart: J:spade: 7:spade:

      SB checks, Hero checks, CO bets $0.14, SB calls $0.14, Hero ???

      On the flop, I have 5 outs (discounting the A:spade:) . I need about 23% equity if my calculations are right. CO looks quite fishy (36/29 over 14 hands) and SB is a calling station. I think I have enough odds to call. Can you confirm (or not :D )? Thanks!

      i don't think it's a good idea to check/call as a Preflop Aggressor, if you plan to call, why don't you place a continuation bet yourself and generate some fold equity? and if they don't fold you give it up on turn unimproved :) check call is way too weak as a PFA IMO

      That's a good point. I should plan ahead more. Thank you for your answer!

      Hello Elertar,

      Well, there is no way we are going to Check/Call it, even if we get odds. We could be already pretty much dead. :> If you even want to continue then rather CBet for fold equity.

      Best regards.
