      Folding the flop is terrible. Your equity is easily good enough here.

      Hi,

      I fold this hand if I was not using HUD. But if I see his vp$ip at the moment of play, I probably call, which doesn't mean that I'm right after all :) lol! It is because I personally have difficult to drop AK.

      His vp$ip is high, but despite this fact the RPF is very tight and you have just 25 hands, that is not so much to base your action on that. As I said, I have difficult to leave my AK..

      Resuming: I think you should fold.

      But about the odds, I have this opinion: your pot odds is 3:1 and equity is 3:1... so in the long run you will not earn or loose money... Am I right judges?

      Nice fishy opponent there with a 10BB stack. The fact he limps 50% of his first 25 hands is good enough for me to call his 1/2 potsize bet on the flop even if he looks tight postflop with 0.8%AF over the first 25 hands i don't think he necessarily is.

      Imo he could have just about anything and there is no way i would let this go for the price you've been given.

      I think he would play the same with any pair(or maybe any hand) after noticing that the pot was twice as big as his stack.


      i wouldn't normally think twice about this situation... interesting hand!

      If we have 6 clean outs its a marginal -EV spot because we have just about 20% EQ. But sometimes he will show us a hand like AT,AJ or even A2...
      Then we would have 85%, which really boosts our overall equity.

      I think we are sometimes still ahead, so call!
