      4betshove preflop, you are out of position and by calling you lose the initiative (as long as his 3bet% is more than 5% i think you can reshove)

      Hey Natasha74,

      with only 29 hands and no reads villain is aggressive I would have folded preflop. min3-bet is often sign of a monster. So, if you believe you have equity against villain's 3-bet range, then shove preflop and fold otherwise. Calling will only lead you into trouble as you will have to play OOP and without initiative.

      As played, I would c/f flop. Since villain is mostly unknown and doesn't look aggressive preflop so I would put him on AK/JJ+ and against this range you get 24.8% equity on the flop while you need 33% break even equity.

      Regards,

      Well i had a gutshot straight draw isn't this considered a made hand? We push according to SSS?! I agree with calling preflop, i should of fold it, min 3 bet is a monster in 95% imo.

      According to articles draws should be played as made hands, but only when you are preflop aggressor, in this hand you were not. Another thing, gut shot isn't considered a draw(at least not a draw you can play as made hand, you need 8+ outs to play your draw as made hand as preflop aggressor), but rather trash.

      However, in my previous post I showed you your equity against opponent and you see you are behind against his range, besides you cannot expect to have any fold equity against him on such a flop, I don't think he folds AKo which is the only hand from his range he might.
