      Hi mla,

      Both players are short and both have put a pot size bet in on the flop.

      Do you really think a better hand will fold? I really doubt it. I don't see AT+ folding (as we saw from the results as well).

      However, there are some worse hands that can call plus we have a lot of equity.

      so is it then better to call flop and fold turn unimproved? You are right that it is very unlikely that they fold better hand.

      If both stick around on the turn can we even fold? It would be close.

      Given their stack I don't mind getting it in on the flop because we always have decent equity. It's just that I wouldn't expect better hands to fold very often.
