      -----

      SB is unknown.

      Preflop: standard open.

      Flop: I call a donk as if I raise, weaker hands will fold. If he had continued with small bets on turn and river I would have raised on the river for value.
      Turn: In this spot I'm pretty much always behind and should have just folded. However, at the heat of the moment I thought he could do this with AJ+ or FD so I called.

      To break-even I need 44.91% equity.

      Hands that I beat that could shove:
      AJ, AQ, AK, KsQs, QsJs, Js9s (19+6 combos)

      Hands that beat me:
      AT, A2, A8, 22, TT, 88, AA (28 combos)

      So if the range of hands that I beat that would shove is correct, calling may not be such a bad decision. However, if he is playing draws passively and does not overplay TP then I'm beat.

      In retrospect, I think folding is the best option vs unknown.

      Hello,

      Preflop and flop are good.

      On the turn, against unknown I would be folding here all day long. I don't think calling such a huge overbet is a good idea at all with TPTK against unknown so just fold and get to the next hand.

      PS: In your calculations, why don't you use Equilab instead of writing down the combinations yourself? I mean, your method is even wrong, since you do beat on the turn a hand like Js9s, but it has 30% equity on the turn, so it's 70/30 which should be considered in the calculations.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Hi Plamen

      Thanks for the evaluation.

      I write down combos as it helps me to understand where the equity numbers are coming from. I guess I should also put it into the equilab to get the most accurate answer.

      I knew I should fold :f_biggrin:
