      Hey. Sorry I don't have a hand to post, searched but couldn't find one.
      This happens to me a lot and I usually don't know what to do. The situation is the following:
      I raise with JJ from, let's say, MP. Someone calls from the button. Flop comes: Qs 4h Ts. I bet half the pot and the other guy reraises. What should I do? push or fold?
      I have invested 8BB at least, now I have to pay 12BB to win 40BB, which means I need to win at least ~25% of the times to make it profitable.

      Hi vmarqui,

      Q:s4:hT board is something I mostly cBet and depending on Villains tendencies as in can he c/R flushdraws as well or only nutted hands I call or fold

      Thing with your hand is that you block KJ///J9 for the straightdraw.

      If you equilate your hand with the board versus a range you can probably see that you do not have the necessary equity most of the times

      If the board was Q:s4:hT, I can consider checking back to get value on the Turn/River

      Best regards,
      Gerv
