      MP2: $2.97 (148.5 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $3.02 (151 bb)
      CO: $2 (100 bb)
      BTN: $2.14 (107 bb)
      SB: $3.06 (153 bb)
      BB: $1.44 (72 bb)
      MP1: $4.16 (208 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A Q
      CO posts BB OOP, 2 folds, Hero raises to $0.08, CO calls $0.06, BTN folds, SB calls $0.07, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.26) 5 3 6 (3 players)
      SB bets $0.13, Hero calls $0.13, CO raises to $1.92 and is all-in, 2 folds

      $0.65 pot ($0.04 rake)
      Final Board: 5 3 6
      Hero mucked A Q and lost (-$0.21 net)
      CO mucked and won $0.61 ($0.40 net)
      SB mucked and lost (-$0.21 net)


      what should I do in the situation on flop when CO went all in? I had flush draw + 2 strong overcards. Did I have enough outs to call it?

      if he's jamming all flush draws you need to call this.

      If he's jamming middle pocketpairs like TT your overcard outs are clean and you need to call this

      If he's only jamming 2 pairs and sets this is a clear fold.

      I cannot answer this question for you without any more info but do note that your preflop raise is to 4BB which may tighten up his calling range and make him more weighted towards pocketpairs (aka sets)

      i think we have on average 10-11 outs so roughly 45% but this is a kinda bad scenario vs a strong range like sets, other big diamonds.
      we need 1.92/4.21 ~ 45%
      guy could very well be a monkey and jam 77, 64s type of hands which would improve our equity in this case.
      i gambol.

      also, raise flop vs the guy donking. hell donk/call weakish hands ala 6x, 4x, 54s, 77-99 vs which a) we have great equity and b) most turn/rivers are bad for him and well get him out of his hand when we dont hit.
      makes also our life easier in case sb wants to get it in otf.

      Hello Crixus26,

      Raise it bigger with dead blind so 10 cents. Though otherwise I'd be more inclined to fold whilst we don't have that much information there. Nor we don't even know with what he could be shoving like that.

      Best Regards.
