      Coin flip. You have 57% equity the villain has 43%.
      Against his stack yea you can shove all in, but do you really want it? This was actually your best scenario to be up against two overcards. But he could also easily have bigger PP. You can call his bet but if the flop brings one overcard you are pretty much done, and if you do hit your set you won't get paid that much.
      It all went down to if you want to flip a coin, but that is a the best scenario a lot of times you can be up against a bigger pocket pair. I personally would have just folded and lost 8c instead of 89c. Depends how much of a gambler you feel today.

      Hello sebsejr,

      Well, against that kind of stack it's kinda hard to fold for the given odds. Most likely I would play the same way. In long run you should still be even earning profit.

      Best Regards.
