      Easy fold here? He isn't a loose player, so I suppose I can't expect him to have a hand worse than mine, after that reraise, right?

      Hi Calta,

      First, lead out Potsized against multiple opponents in a Freeplay. The odds they get after one calls get exponentionally lucrativer every time.

      His AF is quite high but his range is wide enough to go broke here. I think its unlikely he has an Eight. If he also has a King, I think your kicker would be in your advantage.

      I would have shoved it. No funky calls nor reraises.

      wow , tough spot

      i think you can really fold here because he sees you betting into 3 opponents on such a board, another player calls and now he raises. that shows a lot of strength... you only beat KT, but he might also have KQ or an 8...

      If i have one of those days where i play my best game i fold here


      standard would be to push because of top pair, jack kicker

      Isnt this a Way-Ahead or Way-behind situation? If he has Trips, you only have 2 outs, if he has KT, you have him beat.
      But since we have such a small stack + his AF is 4.7 + his range on the SB, could that be the cutting edge to shove it?

      Im no fan of TPGK/TK-Shoving actions personally

      yes, he is in the SB, so he could easily have 85s, 86,87,98,T8, whatever....

      of course he can also have K2, but does he raise it here??
      He plays 14/6 after 100 hands, so he isnt totally stupid

      you are right, its kinda WA/WB, but i think we are SO often way behind :D

      How do I calculate his range on the small blind? Do I raise his VPIP a bit?
