      Hello Philfox1985,

      You can easily fold it on river, I doubt that he is even playing this way with AQ. Such a Check behind usually makes me doubt that we have him beat. Also usually when they overshove like that it's towards to FH. The only one which we beat is A2. Against for example:

      Board: A:diamond: Q:spade: 2:club:  2:diamond:  6:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    53.85%  53.85%   0.00% { AA, QQ, 22, A2s, A2o }
      UTG+1  46.15%  46.15%   0.00% { 6d6s }

      Against that kind of range you can't Call it profitable. :(

      Best Regards.

      Not convinced I would ever change my play here.

      Even against your very tight range which excludes 2 pairs & potential bluffs we have the odds we need to call?

      We put in $4.23 to win $10.00, so we need 42% equity before we get raped by the rake?

      Well the case is that A2 might even not that likely in his opening range while he is pretty nitty even with steals. And from CO even more, then you would get something like this, if we do add A2s:

      Board: A:diamond: Q:spade: 2:club:  2:diamond:  6:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    77.78%  77.78%   0.00% { AA, QQ, 22, A2s }
      UTG+1  22.22%  22.22%   0.00% { 6d6s }

      It would change a LOT. ;)

      We put in $4.23 to win $10.00, so we need 42% equity before we get raped by the rake?

      Yes, we need ~43% equity but what I gave there was pretty much the best hope we can get. If we exclude rake then it would be ~45% or something similar or near break-even at the best for us. But now take a view without the A2o above.
