      Would you have made the call? Or even fold on preflop raise? It's really funny how ppl are playing on NL10, hope I will soon reach the next level.

      Known players:

      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.60 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with Q:club: , A:diamond:
      UTG+2 folds, Hero raises to $0,40, 2 folds, CO raises to $1,00, 3 folds, Hero calls $0,60.

      Flop: ($2,15) 9:heart: , K:club: , 6:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1,00, Hero raises to $0,85 (All-In), CO gets uncalled bet back..

      Turn: ($3,85) 7:club:
      River: ($3,85) 9:club:

      Final Pot: $3,85

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of nines (Qc Ad)
      CO shows a pair of nines (2h Ah)

      Hero wins with a pair of nines (Qc Ad)

      Push Preflop ;)

      1] Raise:stack says 3.6 so you can push
      2] I will take 1/3 of his PFR but add a +50% due his position advantage so his range is approx 8% which is AT+ KJ+,88+ against that you have a 50.5% edge.

      if you push you push $1.45 in order to win $1.5 (SB=Rake) thus your needed equity is 49%.
      Against any PP lower than Q you have a 45/55 and against KJ and lower Axs you have a 67/33 edge.

      67 + 45 / 2 = 56% mean equity if you face this loose opponent but I think the 50.5% is a more reliable percentuage

      So in my opinion, +EV to push this.

      Calling is not an option since you are out of position + you dont have iniative.

      Hi veriz,

      actually your play works in this hand, but normally I dont like it. You still need 39,2% equity against CO 3betting Range which must be 88+,AJs+,KQs,AQo+ to get break even. Normally I doubt that he will 3bet this loose, especially on micro limits there isn't that much 3betting. So a fold in this spot is fine.
