      Pacific, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      MP: $12.64 (126.4 bb)
      CO: $7.21 (72.1 bb)
      BTN: $6.17 (61.7 bb)
      SB: $10 (100 bb)
      BB: $10.98 (109.8 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $10.16 (101.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A K
      Hero raises to $0.30, MP calls $0.30, CO raises to $1.35, 3 folds, Hero raises to $10.16 and is all-in, MP calls $9.86, CO calls $5.86

      Flop: ($27.68) 4 6 4 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($27.68) 7 (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($27.68) 2 (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      Results:
      $27.68 pot ($1.38 rake)
      Final Board: 4 6 4 7 2
      MP showed Q A and lost (-$10.16 net)
      CO showed T 9 and lost (-$7.21 net)
      Hero showed A K and won $26.30 ($16.14 net)


      Did villain with T9s make the right call here? He needed at least 27% equity to make this call (including rake is perhaps around 30%). If UTG and MP are both fishes with a loose shoving range and I'm villain can I call profitably here?

      Hi Tommy,

      Preflop: You played it fine although we could also 4-bet smaller rather than just shove.

      As far as the villain goes, I don't think he made a profitable call at all. However he plays a 72 bB stack and is most likely a recreational player so we shouldnt be too surprised.

      If we were in his shoes, assuming 100 BB stacks we can't really justify a call there.

      This exercise is easily solved with Equilab.

      Take T9s and put in two ranges you think you may face and see what equity you have.

      Hi!


      We`re going broke also 100BB deep?

      I think, it would be profitable. CO squeezing range probably is something like: JJ+,AQs+,KQs,AQo+. He will fold some of his range to 4-bet and we gain immediate profit.

      He`s probably stacking off with QQ+,AKs,AKo, against which we got 40% equity.

      What if we`re 150BB deep?

      100 BB deep we shouldn't just shove but make a normal 4-bet (25-30 BB). 150 BB deep it gets closer to a fold. We can't call OOP and 4-bet/stacking off shouldn't be standard. We could 4-bet/fold as a bluff.
