      I realise my bet-sizing is wrong (wasn't it?), should have been x4 = 0.8 but go all-in because it leaves me with .11 on the flop. What I want to know was if my choice of folding given the situation was correct. I haven't posted results, but it's pretty typical for the huge calling range of most NL2 players :f_mad: .

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Shove pre, any 3bet commits you anyway. QQ is the nuts in NL2, get it in to avoid tough spots like this one.

      Yes I agree with enemaze here

      I mean we are more or less committed on any flop if we are going to invest 50%+ of our stack preflop because we get 3:1 on any Flop

      On 2NL people will call with worser hands for sure because the majority of players there just want to have a good time ;)

      Best regards,
