      Hey veriz,

      This hand gave me alot of confusion.

      On the flop, I did a value cbet, as I thought I was likely still ahead. His reraise though was very unusual. No real straight draw, only a flush draw. However, if he was on the flush draw, why did he reraise? So i ruled that out. What was left in my opinion as likely in his range was a pocket pair 88+.

      Hence I called, as I'm ahead of this range (with 56.30% equity). On the turn though, hand the dangerous overcard. Hence my uncertain check and then I guess I acted without thinking in folding.

      Was I incorrect in folding, and should I rather have called (or even reraised) as Ax type hands are unlikely and my estimate of his range being 88+ accurate? Or how would you go about putting him on a range?

      Hello rudders93,

      Well, first of all I'd CB he flop bigger ~$0,30 even. :) As we continue it really depends on the opponent, against some I might even 3bet it right on the flop.

      But as played we can't really do much on the turn, while Ax hands are also possible like nutFD, A9/A8 or whatsoever and of course even sets are possible. So I'd Check/Fold.

      Best Regards.
