      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (8 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Hero (SB) ($9.50)
      BB ($10.20)
      UTG ($20.35)
      UTG+1 ($27.30)
      MP1 ($43.85)
      MP2 ($58.90)
      CO ($50)
      Button ($61.40)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q, K
      6 folds, Hero bets $1.25, BB raises $3.50, Hero raises $8 (All-In), BB calls $5.50

      Flop: ($19) A, 4, 7 (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Turn: ($19) A (2 players, 1 all-in)

      River: ($19) Q (2 players, 1 all-in)

      Total pot: $19

      Against his BBresteal range I definitely can go broke, but only 700 hands on villain. I guess his range is wider than 88+, AJ+ what would you give him? Have no idea what is right here- folding sucks, going broke too. What would you do here?

      Hello jenoc,

      you need 44,3% break even equity and according to equilator this corresponds to 14% handrange. According to xarry's suggestion ATS and fold2steal should be halfway correct with 500-1000 hands, so you can safely go broke with KQo.

      There's just one trick, if villain prefers to raise A-rags and PPs then KQ's equity against his range is worse than against range equilator picks by default, so it might be better to go broke in such a spot with medium A-rag than with KQo, but as said above, KQ is a push.

      Nice hand.
