      0.5/1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:spade: , J:club:
      3 folds, MP2 calls $1.00, 2 folds, Hero raises to $4.50, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $8.00, Hero calls $3.50.

      Flop: ($17.50) 8:heart: , T:diamond: , 9:diamond: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $6.00, Hero calls $6.00.

      Turn: ($29.50) K:heart: (2 players)
      MP2 bets $10.00, Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $39.50

      Well ofc my pf call is non-standard and possibly -EV. However, I can hardly 4bet in this spot with AJ and 40+bb so it's either fold or call and evaluate the flop. Mp2 looks pretty loose and we have position which speaks in favour of a call and I get 4:1 pot odds so overally I think a call is ok here.

      On the flop we have a 1 card oesd and again villain min bets. Our odds to call the c-bet are 2.91:1 + implieds but it's hard to say how many of our outs are clean. I decided to call one street and gave up on the Turn, mainly through indecisiveness. Probably folding on the flop was best but I did briefly consider shoving.

      you have 31% equity against AA on the flop.
      I dont like the flop call because we create no foldequity.

      I would have pushed the flop because we have much equity if being called + FE

      I probably would have folded preflop here.

      Limp/Re-raise is pretty strong in my opinion. Usually the fish will only play like this if they have monsters like QQ+/AK+

      he'll never fold any overpair maybe ak - if he's limpraising this hand.
      i like the downcall and i also call the turn and go on every A,Q oir 7 broke

      the preflopcall is very close
      of course u cant fold to any min3bet but u dont know anything about his range or which of your outs are clean.
      =high variance :s_cool: :s_evil:

      I dont like a downcall because you are comitted against a standard turn bet.
      Use the fold equity against an 8, 9, 77,66

      call flop, call turn, call river = downcall

      yeah i also don't like downcalls
      but with the dubble stack we'd still pushing 34$ in a 23$pott
      we've got against an TT+ Ako limpraisingrange 30% FEQ and 30% against his callingrange. =not really +EV
      so until i see him limpraising a lot of crap, i'll prefer calling in this spot.
      i dont like it but i also dont see another line without more information

      look at our opponent, goldflair
      We cover his stack.

      He has just 20$ left after his flop cbet.
      So I think its okay to push.

      goddamned :D

      sry :f_cool:

      with the new stacksize the calculation is still positive
      0.3*23+0.21*40-0.49*26
      6.9+8.9-13
      =+2.8$

      I don't like the call preflop vs a 4 pfr limp/minraise. I just think *monster* and let it go so that I don't spew chips postflop!

      32/4 + limp/min3bet = mostly a monster or at least a hand that has you dominated at least

      I just save my money here and fold, control variance (& your stomache) imo.

      Do you think he will fold after he limp/3betted Wuusaa & goldflair?

      i think Gerv is right.
      He will never fold after limp/reraise - bet flop.
      And without foldequity we cannot push here.
      :(

      :D

      well as we sayed , if he's still folding ak from his very strong limp/raising range (we gave him) then the push is still +EV.

      i personally dont like to fold preflop equity away (especially against an random fish). of course u have to take care when u play postflop with an dominated hand.

      so a tight fold preflop isn't wrong at all.
