      Total pot: $6.87 | Rake: $0.29

      Was this the right call?

      With the call preflop and on the flop on such a dry board I'm putting him on a Tx hand when I make the call, the raise on the turn makes me think he may have been slow playing a set on the flop. I don't really see two pair as a possibile hand unless its T8.

      When I make the call the pot is already bigger than my stack before his raise so I'm getting great odds against the range I give him, but I feel the call was wrong as the only hand I'm ahead of here is AT and I dont think the hand would play that way.

      If I give him a range here on the turn of TT, 88, 66, 33, ATs, ATo, T8s, I've got 44% equity but is this ranging right for this spot? and if not what range should I have been using.

      Thank you all for any input you may have.

      Hello kenny0503,

      Why ain't ya having full stack? PokerStars has even the possibility to add it automatically. Add to full stack.

      Assuming that it's ZOOM poker they will have a lot better hands in their range which Check/Raise there. I would plan to Bet/Fold it there than go broke vs unknown.

      Best Regards.
