      Hi veriz,

      I want to make a pot size raise here. I wonder if it's a good idea while being out of position? Against his range (TT,KTs+,JTs,KTo+,JTo) I got 66%. And my break-even equity if I raise $0.70 is 39%. Do I fold if he push after my raise?

      About the break-even equity, can it be used like in the example above? I don't know maybe to decide how much we raise? So I don't get pot commited. For instance, with the same situation above, but you only got 35% equity, if you raise $0.70 you need 0.70/(0.25+0.15+0.70+0.70) = 39%, so you lower your raise to match your equity to $0.40 or 33%.

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Well, I'd ask you the first and easy question here. Why do you even in first place Check?! It's just the worst play. :( Rather CBet it and make it standard and protect your hand. Don't really see why you need even those calculations there. Also they are mostly wrong for the given range you did put him on.

      Best regards.

      Just curious about it's used here :f_biggrin:
      What do you mean by mostly wrong here? Is it the range?, the equity?, or the calculation?

      I forgot why I check here, it's an old hand. But it's probably because I want to get value by c/r here. Is pocket ace is not strong enough to c/r here?

      The range of the opponent. You are mainly putting the opponent on strong made hands. But while he could as well even have draws etc type of hands.
