      River: ($20.45, 2 players) 5:spade:

      villain 16/13/11 af/ PF 3bet 2 (514) he was also a PS.com player

      when he raised me on the turn i was thinking he would only do this with 2x or a set, a straight i think is unlikely. i don't really see him calling PF + F wiht too many Q8 or Q4 or even 84, so 2x doesn't really fit. with overs he would raise PF ofc, so that leaves 44 QQ.

      but can i ever fold here?

      (the thing that does make me happy about this hand, that i really thought all that before i called)

      Hello tofu22,

      Well, already the first case here is that we just need ~32% equity. If we even include only 44/QQ into his range then we already getting the equity:

      Board: 4:heart: Q:spade: 8:club:  5:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    50.00%  50.00%   0.00% { 8h8s }
      UTG+1  50.00%  50.00%   0.00% { QQ, 44 }

      So I doubt that we can get away here. Just unlucky if he has the hand. :( Also of course if even has 67 then also worth taking note that he cold calls 67.

      Best Regards.
