  • nuts???? the real meaning of....?

    just help me out dear readers!! in this stage i have to push my 3 BB A8 before the blinds hit me and i realy couldn't find an earlier spot to gain me some chips this dude calls and made some more of these calls and his reason was he had a 37% chance of winning against ATC My Question is there any one Who would have played the same just because of this reason and is willing to tell me why it's valid??

    He has to put less than 1k in to win a 3.5k pot heads up, so mathematically it is correct to call any 2 cards.

    Other considerations might override this though.

      I Cant really blame any1 for calling atc when your stack is so low they're getting 3 to 1 + HU. Any two cards and chance of one over/under for 60/40 makes it way to juicy to pass up Imo

      I give em two thumbs up (even if he has no idea why it really was the right move)

        the opp has to put 935 into a pot of 2635 or 35.5%.
        ATC against your A8 has a hand equity of 40.1% per pokerstove.

        Since the hand equity is higher than the % of chips they need to put into the pot.... the opp has to make the call, as it is +EV for them in the long run.

                      It was intended to be funny, but there is also a serious side to it. I meant leave it running in the background and minimise it, that way you don't have to keep loading it. umbup:
