      Villain: openlimping fishy shortstack

      I think that with my equity and outs I could/should be bet/calling the turn vs his stack:

      Equity needed: ~26%

      An approximate range that he may have (depends on the guy, but this should be reasonable)

      Board: 2:diamond: 7:heart: 9:heart:  6:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    33.10%  32.71%   0.38% { AhTh }
      MP3    66.90%  66.52%   0.38% { JJ-66, 22, A9s, A7s, K9s, Q9s, J9s, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 76s, KhQh, AhJh, KhJh, QhJh, AhTh, KhTh, QhTh, JhTh, Ah8h, Ah6h, Ah5h, Ah4h, Ah3h, Ah2h, A9o }

      Even if he doesn't push FDs we still have a call:

      Board: 2:diamond: 7:heart: 9:heart:  6:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    30.75%  30.35%   0.40% { AhTh }
      MP3    69.25%  68.85%   0.40% { JJ-66, 22, A9s, A7s, K9s, Q9s, J9s, T8s+, 97s+, 86s+, 76s, A9o }

      In fact, if I'm betting, then I should be bet/calling this turn with most FDs that are in my range, I suppose.

      Which makes me question: are we happy about choosing this a line (bet flop, bet/call turn) on this board texture vs a possibly loose opponent? Are there not better plays available?
