      I would push the turn, try to get the remaining fold equity, hopefully villain is folding some 3s and 5s

      Interesting. Seeing that A on turn makes me doubt my FE against lower pockets so I check back. I think my play is too weak though, What does everyone else think?

      We have 15 outs against a low pocket pair and shuld have at least 10 clean outs in any case which is just a little less than we need equity wise. If we get just 10% FE on the turn the move becomes profitable. I hope I calculated it alright :)

      You need to let 25% of his range fold on the Turn in order to be break-even given 25% equity against 22+ but with Ax into the equation, you only have 20%

      Therefore I think it is too marginal to barrelshove here. If things are marginal in my eyes, I tend to just check

      It is a BvB situation so we do not have a fixed range from the get go

      check on the Turn is definitly not weak, it is a very good move since the As ain't a scare card
