      Hi, I play these spots in same way as you. On a flop we have 12 outs (I do not count rather with overcard as we can stand against two pairs or set) so we have approx. 1:1 chance to hit our draws on turn or river. WP imo.

      Hello PhilipDunphy,

      Nah, don't really like the Call here. Cause you could be against very strong range here. We need ~45% equity and even if we put him on some realistic range as:

      Board: 9:diamond: 8:diamond: Q:spade:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    43.50%  43.42%   0.09% { KdTd }
      UTG+1  56.50%  56.41%   0.09% { 99-88, AQs, Q9s-Q8s, JTs, AQo, Q9o-Q8o, JTo }

      we still don't get it. So at the best we just see a break-even spot here unless we assuming he is shipping with total crap and worse draws.

      Best Regards.

      Hi, I agree that against realistic range as you suggest we are slightly underdog but I think average villain on NL2 is rather fish and he will not go all-in there with a straight or set.

      From my point of view his all-in looks quite weak and it is rather semi-bluff with a straightdraw or flushdraw or even gutshot(AT f.e.), or value bet with something like Qx or 98.
