      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy Elephant 0.67 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with K:heart: , 8:heart:
      UTG1 calls $0.50, 2 folds, MP2 calls $0.50, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.50, SB calls $0.25, BB checks.

      Flop: ($2.50) 5:heart: , 2:spade: , 3:heart: (5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG1 checks, MP2 bets $0.50, Hero calls $0.50, SB raises to $4.38, 2 folds, MP2 raises to $10.26, Hero ????

      Are there enough equity/ implied odds to call this? Considering the looseness of their play (30 Vpip), equilator is showing I have about 46% equity and the call is 36% (~$10/$28).

      Hi,


      Raise MP2's minbet and fold to a 3bet from anyone. Even as played it's possible anybody has a set and you don't even have the nut flush, if you somehow get all-in against AhXh you're toast, and even against sets you're not doing that great.

      It's just not worth the trouble past the first raise in an unraised pot imo. You're not even closing the action, so you have to guarantee that SB won't just come over the top again.


      Hope it helps.
