MP1 mrb111 (\$12.29)
MP2 mtr.qq (\$14.14)
MP3 Hero (\$4.90)
CO glnexttime (\$4.49)
BTN zzz...moto (\$3.14)
SB grzes_kid (\$3)
BB shurets (\$5.37)

Pre-Flop: (\$0.35, 9 players) Hero is MP3 7 7
4 folds, Hero raises to \$1, 2 folds, grzes_kid goes all-in \$3, 1 fold, Hero calls \$2

Flop: Q 2 6 (\$6.25, 2 players, 1 all-in)

I raised more as a steal, but faced an opponent who shoved with stack of 3\$, so my odds here were 2:1.
To be honest if I knew he has AK and stack of 3\$ I would of gamble here and play this the same way as I did.

Not sure if thats correct tho ?

do you know how to calculate your equity?

and we alway play against a range not against a special hand

then i have a further question: why do raise sometimes 3bb and in other hands 4bb? can you explain that to me?

the pot will be 6,10 big minus rake, it would be 5,80

you have to pay 2\$ to win this 5,80\$

2/5,80 = 34,5% equity which we needed against his range

now we take our equliator and calculate some ranges

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 35.550% 35.35% 00.20% 246949740 1412454.00 { 77 }
Hand 1: 64.450% 64.25% 00.20% 448845384 1412454.00 { 99+, AQs+, AQo+ }

I have taken a tight range and against this range ew have enough equity

but I also think that he will push a little bit looser because of his small stack

so the call has been ok

Hello Raupe!
I dont know why I didint answer your question in first place, but I ve seen your second response last night lafter the session( 2am).
Been kind of busy this days, but never ment to ignore you whatsoever, sorry for late reply.

I know how to calculate equity, but the part which is kinda new to me is the calculator part.Played a little bit with it now, but still get results as you did.
IF you could explain this more in details would be much appreciated.

You asked me why I sometimes raise 4BB and sometimes 3BB.
Standard raise in SSS is 4BB +1BB/limper.
And standard steal rise is 3BB.
So usually when I steal from CO+ I tend to raise 3BB, and when raising for value is 4BB.
I figured out last night that I play slightly too many tables, so I sometimes make a mistake and missclick.

Thx for your effort and sorry for being so late once again.

Cheers

what do you want to know exactly?

theme raising size:

on nl25 the others players will not recognize that you raise with 4bb for value and with 3bb as a "steal", but this is very unbalanced

you have to play the "trash" and the value hands same so that nobody knows if you have a strong hand or not

if you raise more than the SHC try to raise every position 3BB und if you have a limper always raise 3bb + numbers of limpers
