      when i got reraised all in on turn, i was sure i got beat. the question is, do i have equity to call that bet? the pot was to big and im commited i think. Also, my line of hand is messed up? Could i have played this hand diferent?

      Please hide the results next time :)

      I think your flop line is fine without reads, i'd 3bet a little bigger tho.

      As played on the turn if he had a flushdraw he has you beat now, if he had a set he still has you beat, if he had Kx he'll be inclined to fold it unless he has a big spade to go with it, so you're not clearly betting for value. Also, betting and getting shoved on with a redraw to the nuts would suck. You can actually check/call at that point, especially since he made a minraise on the flop chances are he's no good at sizing bets correctly, he might be like $0.5 and let you redraw cheap.

      As played when he shoves and you get 3:1 pot odds you likely have to call it off with your redraw, on the off-chance he can have Kx with a spade and other non-nut hands in that spot, even if he has a set/flush you have some outs. Just remember the tighter MP2 looks, the less you want to put yourself into that spot to begin with, so consider check/calling.

      Hope it helps.
