      opps sos. meant to put this on micro:

      Was defending my blind against a LAG.

      Pretty sure an allin raise is +ev in this position is he standard 3bets rather than mad push. (oesfd)
      But is calling good?

      Hello Deadbillis,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      And sorry for the delay, I was in London and now back home. :)

      Why do you Call preflop in first place? Do you know the opponent or how do you play to overplay him? But otherwise I would just Check/Raise it bigger on the flop and also get it it in. Our hand is very strong with the OESFD, enough of equity.

      Best Regards.
