Seven-deuce rule

      When we have our poker night at university, we play NL10 and sometimes with the seven-deuce rule seen in High Stakes poker. If someone wins a pot with 7-2, all other players pay him 40cents.

      Now, I had this crazy situation
      I was dealt seven-deuce under the gun and took a standard shot with a 4BB or 40 cents raise, the player behind me went all-in for 2.2 € and all others fold. It was a 9 player table, almost full ring.

      What should I have done ? Fold it or call it ?
      The pot was 2.75 € at that point with 1.80 € for me to call. If I'd have won, I'd have the pot plus 2.8 € seven-deuce handouts (8 players minus the all-in dude who'd have been broke)

      It must have been the most interesting decision I ever had to make :D

      I'd say you should definitely muck the hand. There is little chance that your hand is better than the all-in person. And is the 40 cents really worth risking all of your chips?

      But then again, I'd wait until someone more qualified on this subject would reveal their opinion about it. ;)

      Well, no, it's 40 cents from each person.
      So suppose I call then :
      - I lose 1.8 € if I lost the hand
      - I win 5.55 € if I win the hand (2.75 € + 7 times 40 cents), and I get one guy really pissed at me :D

      Aight, lets do some math

      U get 1.8:5.55 odds, or 1:2,86

      Lets put him on a range of any ace any broadway, and any pair.

      That means u get 2.61 odds, so calling would be correct.
