      Wow, QQ in the big blind and almost the whole table limps in. Pushed for fold equity...OK? Standard raise would've been $2.75 or so...


      Hand 2:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed)

      Hero ($5)
      CO ($20.55)
      Button ($15.65)
      SB ($10.65)
      BB ($29.30)
      UTG ($6.60)
      UTG+1 ($9.05)
      MP1 ($11.25)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with Q:spade: , Q:diamond: .
      [color:#666666]3 folds[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $1[/color], [color:#666666]1 fold[/color], Button calls $1, [color:#666666]2 folds[/color].

      Flop: ($2.35) A:diamond: , K:club: , J:club: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $1.5[/color], Button calls $1.50.

      Turn: ($5.35) 3:diamond: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      Hero checks, Button checks.

      River: ($5.35) A:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      Hero checks, [color:#CC3333]Button bets $1.25[/color], Hero calls $1.25.

      Final Pot: $7.85

      My question here is about the river. 5:1 odds to call, right? So was the call OK, or should I have just folded? I figured a busted draw or a bluff was a possibility.


      Hand 3:
      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (8 handed)

      Hero ($5)
      MP1 ($19.30)
      MP2 ($25.70)
      CO ($10.45)
      Button ($26.45)
      SB ($8.30)
      BB ($4.40)
      UTG ($30.65)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+1 with Q:diamond: , Q:spade: .
      [color:#CC3333]UTG raises to $0.5[/color], [color:#CC3333]Hero raises to $2[/color], [color:#666666]5 folds[/color], BB calls $1.75, UTG folds.

      Flop: ($4.60) 8:heart: , 4:heart: , 2:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players)[/color]
      BB checks, [color:#CC3333]Hero bets $3 (All-In)[/color], BB calls $2.40 (All-In).

      Turn: ($9.40) 3:diamond: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 2 all-in)[/color]

      River: ($9.40) 5:spade: [color:#0000FF](2 players, 2 all-in)[/color]

      Final Pot: $9.40

      Results in white below: [color:#FFFFFF]
      BB has 8c 6c (straight, six high).
      Hero has Qd Qs (one pair, queens).
      Outcome: BB wins $9.40. Hero wins $0.60. [/color]

      No question on this hand...it was just a gem I had to share. I made a nice note on this idiot. Calls my preflop raise with 86s, calls my c-bet because he hit top pair on a really low board, and then hits a runner runner straight to beat my Q's :rolleyes:

      Hi Kknight!

      Hand 1: Nice hand! You would have to put in more than half of your stack to raise so an all-in is the correct play.

      Hand 2: I would fold on the river. You only beat a bluff and that small river bet from villain looks like a sneaky value bet to me.

      Hand 3: Nice hand! Just bad luck!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Good call Puschkin...he had KTo. Don't I only need to win ~17% of the time to break even on that call? Or am I figuring that wrong?

      Thanks,

      No, you are right. If you are getting 5:1 odds to call you need to win ~17% to break even.

      Good luck at the tables!
