      on flop i used implied odds his potraise idicated a very strong made hand so i thought i could stack him if i hit. The question is didn't i made my hand too easy to read by this play?

      Hello Jaccuzzi,

      Well, shipping ain't a good idea here for the given reason that his donking range is rather strong. If we would ship here then we would need ~44% equity to make it break-even. But for example against hands like:

      Board: Q:heart: 8:heart: 7:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    39.49%  39.49%   0.00% { AhKh }
      UTG+1  60.51%  60.51%   0.00% { QQ, 88-77, AQs, KQs, AQo, KQo }

      We ain't getting it. For that reason we can Call for the implied odds but they are pretty high, ~$2,20 would be needed on turn which means his whole stack. But can we be sure of that to get? If you think so then sure your play is reasonable.

      Best regards.
