      Hi Nip,

      Here is the way I see your hand:

      UTG: 22+, AJs+, KQs, QTs+, AQo+, KQo, QJo
      Hero A :spade: K :diamond:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 47.177 % 43.320 % 7.713 % 48.967 % 22+, AJs+, KQs, QTs+, AQo+, KQo, QJo
      Player 2: 52.823 % 48.967 % 7.713 % 43.320 % AsKd

      Against this wider range, preflop equity says we have a flip.

      flop: Q :diamond: 6 :heart: 6 :diamond:

      postflop equity is now:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 69.427 % 65.077 % 8.700 % 26.223 % 22+, AJs+, KQs, QTs+, AQo+, KQo, QJo
      Player 2: 30.573 % 26.223 % 8.700 % 65.077 % AsKd

      His check-raise would indicate a strong hand here, it looks more to me like a high-pp or at least an AQ kind of hand...I don't see him doing this strong move with any weaker holdings, basically, you only beat a bluf, and with only 2 over cards, best case scenario you have 6 outs.

      Pot odds are: $1.27 + $0.71 + $1.95 = $3.93
      you need to call for $1.24 to win $3.93, so that's about 3:1 or roughly 33% equity

      I guess you felt you were already pot comitted, but equity-wise, for the long term, I think it's better to fold in these kind of spots

      Hello nipbourne,

      You shouldn't be CBetting in first place on the flop cause you don't get a better hand to fold and nor you don't get value from anything. Just Check it behind and even if you Bet I'd still Bet/Fold it.

      Best Regards.
