      oh no thats not a horribly profitable spot to call the all in. nice fold i would think.

      maybe just bet the flop bigger like 85-90% of the pot instead of your small, and easy to draw off of, 75ish percent bet.

      this hand is bet/fold vs an unknown player at its finest imo.

      nice fold!

      \another question:

      can we think about maybe shipping the turn right away instead of letting him make us fold to an all in?

      Hello spadek,

      Well, if he looks kind of fishy and loose opponent then what do you think he is doing with any Ax hand which is weaker on the turn? :)

      Best Regards.

      Is it a standard to go broke in these spots? I mean is it okay to make the assumption he plays raggier aces like this? As I said I don't know anything about the guy so it would really only be based on assumptions. Getting pretty good odds to call though. What do you think would be like the minimun equity we need in this spot to justify the call?

      With rake included ~27,38% equity. :D You can calculate it. :) Now try putting him on some range and also maybe include weaker Ax hands into his range and take a look if you get it. Also do you think he would even shove with FH?

      Okay, now it seems a really bad fold :D Even if there were only few Ax hands it still seems to be an easy call. Even when I added the possibility of fullhouse and some trips + KQ there were still 35% equity and this was only the worst-case-scenario.

      Well, read all the text through and put the opponent on a range and see if you get the equity which is needed.
