      Really played horrible today, well not in the end of my session, but in all spots where there where only a few hands that beats me, I messed it up.
      I was experimenting to much and it cost me a lot today... Well moving on, here is one hand that really was stupid played by me, also shows how much of a fish I am heh.

      Not sure how to justify my call here, I saw villain as aggressive, and thought he would cbet way to many hands.
      However even thou his small open raise indicated weirdness :P
      he prolly opens ranges towards this UTG:


      So really I'm crushed, even if I hit, fold this even tho we get good odds, but not that good :P

      The flop hits his range quite well and I do think he will continue with most of this UTG range, maybe giving up few PP's etc...

      range is prolly like this:


      Which I do quite well against.
      It might be to dumb to call here, as alot can make his range strong again, but I did to keep him in.

      I think I need to take action now, but when he shoves here I think it was a mistake to call.

      Shove range could look like this:


      Not sure if this is tight enough as this actually makes my call less worse than I thought.

      I need 37% equity to call, and I suppose he could even do this with FDs?

      Board: K:club: 8:diamond: Q:diamond:  4:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    40.80%  40.80%   0.00% { QQ+, 88, AKs, KQs, AKo }
      MP3    59.20%  59.20%   0.00% { Kh8s }

      Did I fail my equity training?
      edited* ofcouse very unlikely he has 88

      Just bumping this not sure what is wrong, I think maybe if you edit the post before ppl write in it, it doesn't get flagged for judges?
      Now I adviced the judge of taking another look at this thread :P

      I would just check/raise the Flop. There is so much value to be had from draws, and worse made hands since you do rep a ton of straight and flush draws.

      As played I'm not loving the Turn jam from villain but it's really draw heavy and I think it's hard to lay this hand down.
