      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, MP3 calls $0.08, 2 folds, SB calls $0.07, BB calls $0.06.

      Turn: ($1.72) Q (2 players)
      SB bets $0.49(All-In), Hero calls $0.49.

      River: ($2.7) Q (2 players)


      Final Pot: $2.7.
      Results follow:

      Hero shows two pairs, aces and queens(K A).
      SB shows a full-house, threes full of queens(3 3).

      SB wins with a full-house, threes full of queens(3 3).

      My question is on the flop call or raise? Let assume if I call the flop do I got more fold equity on the turn. I mean is it a fold against a push? SB=22/5

      Hello Sikac,

      Against SB stack I'd rather prefer to raise and play for the stacks. We are pretty much committed anyways and we might even protect our hand.

      What do you mean if you got more fold equity on turn? He may easily have worse Ax hands there.

      Best Regards.
