      River: ($13,41) 4:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $13,41

      My reason for calling was that I had to call $3 for a $10 pot, giving me odds of 3:1, so I only need to have 25% equity against his range. The problem is that if he doesn't do that unless he has a J or OP I only have 16% equity against JJ+,AJs,KJs,QJs,AJo,KJo,QJo. The question is, is it correct to assume that an unknown middle stack can do that without a J or a an overpair? I only had 16 hands so I didn't pay attention to the stats...

      I think he can have there some straight draws and gutshots, but if you think you´re going to b/c anyway I´d just shove flop not to give him any fold equity
      Other option is bet smt like 1.5$ and fold to shove or maybe check back and then try to go showdown
