      Villain is 71/13/3 120 hands.

      I got 5,1:1 to call the turn reraise. Should I just call instead of being this aggressive? ^_^

      I go allin because I have TPGK and think that if I call I have only a stack left that is equal to 1/2 of the pot and would feel semi pot committed on the river. Also I like having the initiative.

      Hi Chewbroccoli,

      I'm not sure if you should even bet the Turn. While villain is loose, he has a low PFR. I think the Aces in his raising range preflop crush AJ so despite you having a flush draw I think you should consider checking back the Turn.

      His line looks really strong so I just call and hope for the best on the river.

      Calculations of pot odds: I suggest you think in terms of percentage instead of ratios. It's like Americans using the Imperial System while the rest of the world use the Metric System :f_biggrin: Percentages are just way easier to work with, you can compare pot odds in % vs flop equity in %. No one calculates equity in ratios.

      Pot odds = ~17%
      Chances of hitting a flush, provided there are 9 diamonds left in the deck = 9/(52-6) = 19.5%

      This is definitely a call. You have more than enough odds to call, and stacking off just isolates you vs the monsters in his range. We have a very easy fold on a non-diamond. We are also folding on another Ace because it doesn't improve our relative hand strength against our opponent's range (sets and two pairs). On a Jack I think we have a call (but not happy about it).
