      I only had 10 hands of stats on villain, and he was a 90 70. Should I have pushed preflop?
      after his call a wet flop came. I pushed to cbet considering I only needed 25% equity and his range could be anything.

      MP3 shows two pairs, kings and eights(K K).

      Hero wins with a full-house, queens full of eights(Q Q).



      Here I have QQ and I'm facing two raises. However, MP2 was pretty fishy, while MP3 was a 20 15 reg, so I assumed his 3bet range was JJ+ AK at very least.

      Hello vmarqui,

      Before I judge your hands, can you post 1 hand per thread the next time? Only similar played hands could be merged within 1 thread but the maximum amount of hands in 1 thread is still two. Thank you in advance!

      The first hand with AKo is well played. He called with a really really bad hand and managed to get lucky and hit a straight

      [quote] equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 34.023% 33.73% 00.29% 83167488 723564.00 { 32o }
      Hand 1: [b]65.977% [/b] 65.68% 00.29% 161957160 723564.00 { AKo }[/quote]
      Pushing preflop is always an option where you know that you are postflop committed as you see here. I would shove it in if I know he is a fish :)


      In hand 2 according to the SHC you see 2 raises before you which means the only hands you can play are KK and AA so that's why we fold QQ

      If you suspect Mp3 has JJ+,AK, you have 47.4% but if you pokerstove all 3 possible ranges:
      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 37.530% 36.31% 01.22% 7179389928 240864178.00 { QQ }
      Hand 1: 40.265% 38.11% 02.15% 7535017500 426020872.00 { JJ+, AKs, AKo }
      Hand 2: 22.206% 20.54% 01.67% 4060435536 330027682.00 { 88+, ATs+, KQs, AJo+, KQo }
      Equity wise you need around 45% to be profitably shoving this in ,s ince you only have 37.5% that's why we fold
