      The villain is a very bad player with very high VPIP.

      On Game No-Limit Hold'em, $0.04 BB (6 handed) - On Game Converter Tool from http://www.flopturnriver.com

      MP ($5.31)
      Hero (CO) ($5.98)
      Button ($1.34)
      SB ($3.94)
      BB ($5.26)
      UTG ($5.08)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 8, 8
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.12, Button calls $0.12, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.30) Q, 5, 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.16, Button raises $1.22 (All-In), Hero calls $1.06

      I have seen a lot of bad players in the micro stakes do that move with any pair, flush draw or even some A high cards. What do you think? Is my equity against his range good?

      Hi acetbfish,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: Did you run your hand versus his range to see what equity you get here?

      I recommend you run a few simulations with various ranges and report back your findings :)

      I could do this for you but I believe that this exercise will benefit YOU a lot more if you do it yourself (and I can help after you have some results).

      Ok, I assigned him a range: 22+,AJs+,A5s,KQs,Q8s+,85s,75s,53s+,AJo+,A5o,KQo,Q9o+,KsJs,AsTs,KsTs,JsTs,As9s,Ks9s,Js9s,Ts9s,As8s,Ks8s,Js8s,Ts8s,9s8s,As7s,Ts7s,9s7s,8s7s,As6s,9s6s,8s6s,7s6s,6s5s,As4s,6s4s,As3s,4s3s,As2s,4s2s,3s2s
      and it seems that he is crushing me (I got 37.48% equity). What do you think?

      Looks about right.

      We get about 39% pot odds so it is pretty close. If he ever shoves random hands we are closer to break even but never really far ahead (even 2 overcards have decent equity vs us).
