      Hello,

      Sometimes I am taking just Check/Fold on such board against such opponents.

      Best regards,

      Hi Wildbeans,

      Calculate your odds you get assuming you are getting raised all-in and see if you get 3,1:1 for 6 outs, if you get it , shove accordingly. If not then I muck it

      Best regards,
      Gerv

      would you give me 6 outs every time? What about A6 A5 A7 hands which I think are quite likely?

      How about push flop directly as c-bet because 2/3 pot = 40% of his remaining stack and he's OOP?

      I don't think I can create FE against 54/41 despite the fact that I do not know his WTS stats (and other variables)

      Giving up against this fish is also not bad since he likes to (bluff?)raise

      Hmm, ok, I get it.

      And just one more thing:

      Doesn't he need 7:1 with 6 outs which is 3,5:1 for a push rather than 3,1:1? I'm just wondering if I'm missing any detail in the math here.

      As far as I know, 6 outs gives you about 24% chance of winning and so thats 24:76 or 1:3,1

      edit1: I think you're getting confused, because one street is 12:88 and 2 streets is 24:76, - for odds like this you don't just halve one of the sides... However you do double the percentage chance - e.g. if I have 12% to hit one street, then I have 24% to get it on 2 streets..

      edit 2: I would still like to know if you'd always give yourself 6 outs in this situation.. Maybe one should be discounted due to the good possibility of his calling A-rag hands preflop..

      No, I understand that you get 2X more outs for the push. But I think with more precise calculations we can get a slightly higher value for the necessary pot odds:

      #1>> 6:47 = 12,7% or 25,4% for 2 streets. 25,4:74,5 = 1:3,4

      or
      #2>> 6outs:41odds = 1:6,83 < I'd need 6,83 pot odds for BEQ in one street
      And half of that = 3,4 pot odds for 2 streets.

      Does it make any sense?

      No I dont get this

      6.8:1 = One street and you cant just call to say ''Hey I got 3.4:1 if i make it to the river'' since you are missing the Turn as a betting round. only if he checks you can justify it but if he bets on the turn again, your whole Equation is in jeopardy
