      Hi all

      villain is 16/9/2 over 35 hands.

      Was it correct to go all in on turn? Folding I thought was too weak, if I call I will be all in on river anyway.

      I put him on something like AJ, KJ, QJ. But was worried about JT though.

      Thanks a lot

      Hi,


      Even tho it's a small sample size, 16/9/2 doesn't really strike me as the type of player who's going to raise that turn with a top pair. Maybe he can have QQ, and a few KK if he doesn't 3bet much, but JJ-TT/JTs fit just as well and even tho combo-wise they don't make up for that many hands, it's probably more likely he has it than for a tight guy to be going nuts with draws/air/top pairs on JJ3T.

      I don't mind folding it, but i agree if you're going to continue that calling has no purpose. Either you're ahead often enough to make up for the times you're behind or you aren't, and if you are you NEED to make sure you stack those worse hands right on the turn.


      Hope it helps.
