      Hey there guys,

      I´m standing against very passive 32/15 player.
      He is playing very standard line for these types of players with very good hand - call/call/raise turn.
      Now.. I´m not sure why did I choose higher sizing on the turn. I think the main reason was to get it all in. On the other hand if this player raises I guess he is very strong and I don´t know if my call would be appropriate even with aces.
      I´mean...Aces are very good hand but when such player plays that way, I´m not sure if even aces shouldn´t be folded.

      Anyway, I don´ t expect A3 so often in this spot cause I hold AA. 63 would be very improbable even for this guy also. I think that he may shove AA, KK, QQ, JJ + sets. In the end it was a little bit different tho...

      I think it is kinda obvious he has 2pair+ but OK lets see our equities.

      We need roughly 4.2:1 = 19-20%ish equity

      Board: 8:heart: 2:club: 5:spade:  4:heart:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    12.03%  11.86%   0.17% { AdAc }
      MP3    87.97%  87.80%   0.17% { 88, 55-44, 22, A3s, 76s, 54s, 6h5h, 5h2h, 76o, 54o }

      I think I bet smaller not because we can bet/fold but more that we want to keep as many hands in there for as long as we can

      Best regards,
