      Hi,

      plz comment on my decisions and analysis as explained below. thx.

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($2.04)
      BB ($2.01)
      UTG ($0.83) [14 / 5 (40h)]
      UTG+1 ($2.29)
      UTG+2 ($1.08)
      MP1 ($2.49)
      Hero ($2)
      CO ($2)
      BTN ($2.09)

      Dealt to Hero J:diamond: J:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.08, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.08, fold, fold, fold, fold

      FLOP ($0.19) 5:heart: 2:diamond: 4:heart:

      UTG bets $0.18, Hero calls $0.18

      After 40 hands, it's hard to tell if his 5 PFR is correct, so i'm just aprroximately narrowing down his range to 88+ which gives me 48.2% EQ. Given that assumption, i think calling is correct. (If we play for his whole stack i need 44.3%.)

      TURN ($0.55) 5:heart: 2:diamond: 4:heart: 5:spade:

      UTG bets $0.53, Hero calls $0.53

      Because villain is almost AI, i think it is realistic to assume he would bet his whole 88+ range on that turn, giving me 50% EQ. Against a 100bb stack i would probably have folded here. Correct lines?

      RIVER ($1.61) 5:heart: 2:diamond: 4:heart: 5:spade: 3:club:

      UTG bets $0.02, Hero calls $0.02

      Hello HughJazz82,

      Against such a stack there is no point to play Call/Call/Call line, just get it in preflop and play for the stacks. :)

      Best Regards.

      Hi veriz,

      i guess adjusting to villain's stack is one of my leaks. Would you play 3bet/broke here or put him AI directly? What would your range look like in that spot (TT+, AK)? Are there any hands you would coldcall here (e.g. KQs, QJs)?
      I appreciate your advice.

      Yes, I would 3bet but I wouldn't put him directly all-in. Range would be usually those strong hands which I expect to be ahead vs his range, so mainly only strong hand which I want to go broke. Something similar you put out.
