      Preflop: Hero is BU with Q:heart: , J:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,15, SB calls $0,12, BB raises to $0,37, Hero calls $0,22, SB calls $0,22.

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows (Qh Jh)
      SB shows a straight, ace high (As Th)

      SB wins with a straight, ace high (As Th)

      This guy has 12% 3bet.I called the squeeze in position.Maybe a bad call because of his stack.But it wasn t a big 3 bet.I also called the shove on flop with my two pair.


      Please see this example also.Same situation.

      2 things here. shove or fold. The SPR is less than 1 so he basically played it perfectly.
      I would prefer to fold as ur hand is dominated most of the times.
      If he does that a lot than start shoving 77+ everytime he 3bets you.

      Hello EnterG,

      The problem is that you have a shorty behind you who could easily be shoving, I am not a huge fan of flatting there like that. But otherwise of course we are never folding postflop.

      Best Regards.

      it means stack to pot ratio. this is described on professional nl holdem by ed miller. basicaly you divide the smallest stack by the size of the pot and the closer it is to 0 the more commited you are to the pot, hence the call

      yes fold pre, your sample is insanely small. besides he is a 57/19 player which makes me inclined to believe he is on the passive side (meaning he squeezes strong hands only).

      But as played definitely not folding since we beat AK and some other crap
