      I would agree, but I bet you lost the one where you All-In call was right and won where you call was wrong. :D ;)

      1) Players with these sorts of stats don't generally deserve too much credit but the min-3bet looks a bit fishy.It does not look like a squeeze. Calling $3 for set value here cannot be wrong as the money is deep and you have position on the SB. As played though you cannot fold PF and any reasonable 4bet commits you versus this villain.

      2)Opponent specific again and hard to comment. You can hardly fold having put 1/2 a stack in though. Is calling the $15 PF missing too much value?

      I'd be interested to know villain's hands here.

      Hi undercover82!

      Hand 1) It's an easy all-in because your opponent has a huge handrange with this PFR value.

      Hand 2) I would just call the raise from the SB because you are in position and can reevaluate on the flop. There is no need to risk more money preflop because you are pot committed anyway if you reraise.

      Good luck at the tables!
