      he risks 29 to win 31, bluff needs to work 93.5% of the time.

      Defend top 6.5% of your range. Your flush probably doesn't fall into that category.

      thanks for the answers :D
      this was posted in a random thread somewhere about "biggest pots".

      i also was like "zomg how you call here" :f_eek:
      i have no idea how this situation came about... but in-game, though, what actually happened was that hero "happily snapped" (no particular reason given) and ran into KTo. :f_biggrin:

      nl2 levelments :D

      that's pretty funny. use my method if you think opponent is balanced and you are unsure.

      vs a bad player,
      if you think you are ahead >50% of the time, then just call

      Banking on this being a NL2 mad man, I think we call.

      The interest for me here is if you valued the 8 on the flop and only called his bet youre already thinking ' I might be behind and need to improve'? If you then improve to a monster draw HU and go along for the whole ride why would you not call when you think the journeys took you exactly where you hoped it would?

      Sorry coach......im only a novice and didn't understand the maths lesson (but would like to if you could explain further)

      I think the real question here is how did these guys get 1500bb stacks in the first place???
