      Hi treyking,

      Preflop: Looks good versus two fish

      Postflop: This all depends on the type of range you think MP can stack off with.

      Since he is a pretty big fish he can have a lot of 2p, straights, and some combo draws and overall we aren't doing that great.

      Assuming 0 FE we only need to invest 3.77 into a final pot of 13.17 so we only need 28% equity. Because of that I don't think we can fold TPTK with flush redraw unless we can't expect villain to stack off JK/JQ/TQ etc.

      As a homework for you equilab your hand versus a range that you think he'll do this with.

      Hi Treyking,

      You are very welcome. I do recommend that you don't just take everything we say (judges/coaches) for granted. We can make mistakes too and it's good for your development to also challenge everything that you hear (ex: does it make sense to you - and if it doesn't find out why).

      For hand reading exercises I do recommend using hands from your DB in equilab and of course these forums. There are also videos that touch on this subject that you can watch.

      Best of luck at the tables,

      Bogdan
