Villian has a 21/4/2.0 (VPIP/PFR/AF), and my question is, am I always behind on turn if situation like this occurs? And was my call therefore wrong?

i don't think you can fold here. you beat any Qx, KK. although you may often find yourself crushed against nittier players , you cannot fold after betting the turn as you only need 8bucks to win 50bucks.

ok thanks for the info guys.

could anyone explain me the mathematics? if it can be looked from this point of view.

I mean, I need to pay 8.25\$ to win 50.25\$, which means 1:6 pot odds. and if I give him this range: 55, 66, AQs, AQo, KQs, KQo, QJs, QJo, QTs, QTo, 57s, 57o my equity is 68,4%.

What now?

means in the long run against this assumed range, you are expected to win 68.4% of the time. given the odds, you only need 16.42% equity to make a profitable call in the long run
