      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is SB with Q :diamond: A :heart:
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB raises to $3.65, Hero?

      I need 46% equity to call here. I dont even have it vs an underpair. With AQs I'd have, but with AQo I dont have. This is a marginal situation, but because of the rake, this should be a clear fold, shouldnt it?

      Hi Imimba,

      Preflop: I agree with you that this is closer to a fold.

      He needs a really wide range for us to be even break even and even in the best case scenario it's not a hugely plus EV spot.

      As an exercise run your equity versus 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% of hands.
