      How can he call this all in move with such a hand?
      I have to go all in at the flop, because the contibet is about 45-50% of my stack, right?

      he doesn't think. the only hand from your range he is beating is AK ... but again, he doesn't think if he did he wouldnt call preflop.

      you have 1.65 and 2/3 of 1.15 is ~0.77.
      bet 0.75 or 0.8 (less than half your stack) and call with odds (2 OC).

      a push is the way here, i think, as you ll be comitted here anyways.

      next time dont post results, and maybe dont make a title with" right decision?" as every post here is about it :D

      Your Hand range (eg.99+,AQ+) is hugely +EV to you here versus 33.

      Thats why its a NH.

      This villain is your friend (and there are others like him) if he plays like this consistently. Yor range dominates him on every street and your backdoor draws are worth about 7% extra-equity on the flop should you get called. Let him think that he's Gus Hansen picking you off with 33.

      BTW, stacksizes are always handy.

      its posts such as Nunki's as to why you do not post results. The fact he has 33 doesn't affect the reason that is is a nice hand at all. Yes the hand range is +EV vs 33. But all situations are to villains unknown hand range and you remaining stack size etc. Its +EV due to maxing FE and 2OC's.
