      BB: $3.86 (193 bb)
      MP: $5.32 (266 bb)
      CO: $1.94 (97 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $3.79 (189.5 bb)
      SB: $0.75 (37.5 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with T A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB calls $0.05, BB folds

      Flop: ($0.14) 4 Q 7 (2 players)
      SB bets $0.69 and is all-in, Hero calls $0.69

      Turn: ($1.52) 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($1.52) J (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $1.52 pot ($0.05 rake)
      Final Board: 4 Q 7 5 J
      Hero showed T A and won $1.47 ($0.72 net)
      SB showed A 7 and lost (-$0.75 net)


      The villain is unknown, but according to his stack size and the nickname "joker32666" he is a fish (probably a tilting fish).

      Even if I consider aces as my outs -- it's not enough to make profit. However, if I include FDs in his range - this is a clear call.

      What would you do?

      Hi German,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: This is a simple math problem. What equity we have versus the pot odds we get.

      What do you think his shoving range is?

      Hi Bogdan,

      Yeah, I solved the simple math part, and I found out that with 12 outs (against Qx) we are just breaking even (losing considering the rake).

      The only way to earn here is to include FDs in his range, and I don't know whether I can do it or not.

      If I'm not sure about FDs, should I just fold?

      I'd say that I would add at least some FDs and 2nd pair type hands. Against 2nd pair (most of them anyway) we have 3 extra outs.

      Either way the call is borderline profitable so you can go either way really.
