      Final Board: 4 5 2 9 J
      SB showed J J and won $3.96 ($1.92 net)
      Hero showed 6 7 and lost (-$2.04 net)


      SB - ( $6.22 USD ) - VPIP: 44, PFR: 38, 3B: 0, AF: 2.0, Hands: 16

      Flop: I put him on a very pessimistic range of JJ-99, 55-22, 76s. Vs this range, I have around 35% equity. Pot odds are $0.46:$0.16, 2.8:1. I need only 26% and I have great implied odds and also being able to play IP. Thus I called.

      Turn: I'm folding to any non 3 or 8. But I picked up a flush draw and my equity stays e same 34%. He bets big now I'm sure he has a very strong hand. My pot odds are 31%. I also can't just call. I think this is pretty tight since there's only one more card to come. Is this a fold? Shoving w 7 high feels dumb though.

      If you are going to shove with 35% equity, you need FE to make it a profitable play. I don't think you will get him to fold any of his hands OTT, mayyyybe 66-88, but you block some of them anyway.

      I think calling OTT is fine and play hit/miss OTR, and expect to get paid if you hit.

      Otherwise NH.

      I agree. No point shoving if he is never going to fold. You have the choice to fold river and if you hit he's never folding anyway (at this stakes)

      Hello,

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Bet bigger on the flop - $0.1. When he raises calling is fine. We have a very good draw plus we are IP.

      As played, I would only shove here if you expect him to have a lot of bluffs here.
      Otherwise, just call IP and reevaluate the river.

      Best,
      Plamen
