      0,1/0,2 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.58 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A:heart: , K:club: . CO posts a blind of $0,20.
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1,00, 4 folds, BB calls $0,80.

      Flop: ($2,30) T:diamond: , 8:heart: , 3:club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1,25, BB raises to $4,00, Hero raises to $3,70 (All-In).

      Turn: ($10,00) A:club:
      River: ($10,00) 6:spade:


      Final Pot: $10,00


      C-bet was 1/2 potsized due FoldFlop = 30% thus c-betting 2/3 is not profitable

      So as soon as Villain pushed me all in I got the following Pot odds:
      7,25:2.45
      2.95:1

      As its a rainbow flop and i DO NOT think he has Aces or Kings here I have odds of 3,1:1 with 6 clean outs.

      Can I call this based on his stat and my correct calculation?

      A call it's marginal even if you're outs are clean and you can't be 100% sure they are. If you add to this the small chance that you may be drawing dead, I would find a fold.

      I would not of c/bet that flop - if he checked also i would c/bet the turn no matter what card - as played I fold to his raise. BUT I have to say I am a poor AK AQ AJ player after a crappy flop for my cards

      Preflop correct.

      Flop contibet correct. I light the size of it, too.
      (He checks, so you have to assume he's weak. Often you yourself have a hand with 99+ here.)

      After the raise you say yourself: You only have 1:2,95 potodds and you need 1:3,1 for your max. outs.
      Plus you could have less than 6 ag. a set or a slowplayed AT e.g.
      -> fold

      Preflop fine, but all-in chasing an overcard? BB Must have something here, sometimes pot odds need to be ignored.........otherwise you would have to call nearly all all-in situtaions passed only on pot odds.

      Hi Gerv,

      your flop play doesn't make much sense, when you want to play bet/call then you can bet the flop bigger to generate more fe. with your flop bet of 1,25$ you can play bet/fold and should do it. But I really would stick to the basic strategy and make a 2/3 contibet and call his shove. On this low limits they call to much to a half pot size bet.
