      Preflop his range is probably 22+, A2s+, ATo+, Any face cards? My equity against this range is: 43% but on a decent flop I can stack someone with similar hands to what he showed.

      Flop I have 55% equity against AQo against the range as a whole I have 77% equity. Add in the fold equity (20%?) from the check-raise I feel this was a good move. Any further insights?

      Known players:
      Position:
      Stack
      Hero:
      $10.00
      BB:
      $10.95

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Yes I think calling the re-raise was poor. Would you make the first raise or is that a poor move also?

      So postflop play is good? I wasn't sure whether I should just call but then how do I procede if the turn is a blank?

      Edit: Just done a few more runs on the equilator. My equity against overpairs is still fine but if he holds a set it is pretty poor. Of course that is a pretty low chance.

      Nvm that he won like. Been having a few poor days with the odds. As long as I stick to the strategy it'll be fine.
