      I wouldnt fold here for 50BB stack. His range should be quite wide here.

      Thank you for your suggestion, but if i call this every time in the long run it will be +ev?

      Not really that sure about fullring ranges but if we give him a tight range of AQs, AK/Aks, and JJ+


      Board:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    42.82%  28.08%  14.74% { AcKs }
      UTG+1  57.18%  42.45%  14.74% { JJ+, AQs+, AKo }


      I think even if we take out AQs, it is still +EV to call.

      Additionally, I would probably 3-bet a bit bigger, especially if you are 3-betting 3x vs full stacks. If gives them a decent price to set mine with pocket pairs.

      Hello NoMistakes,

      We need about 39% equity here and if we expect the opponent to ship with such a range as Meemawuk gave we can easily even call vs his stack. :) So I wouldn't even mind if you even Call there but obviously folding is just safer option to avoid variance. :D

      Best Regards.
