      Well that hand happen today and i was thinking and thinking...i didnt have any reads since my opponent played only 7 hands so far.

      Well one option was to shove....but is there any worse hand that could pay me...was there enough fold equity??

      the other option is to call....but what then?? i check he shove...and i have the same situation as before + zero fold equity....so i thought that call doesn't make any sense here

      And then i found maybe the easiest way possible here....just fold. I didnt invest a lot so i saw this option as the best one and the easiest one...why to complicate our life?:) )

      Was my thinking and decision correct??

      Thanks judges!!!! U make my play better every day!!!!!!!!

      Hello Alan883,

      About your line I do actually like it! It's really horrible board for out hand, at the best we might against something like 76 but at the same time could be against a lot sets here which are in his calling range. So I'd play most likely the same way.

      Also of course you are welcome to the evaluations. :) Glad to help you out. Hopefully we will find even more leaks in your play.

      Best Regards.
