  • 2 NL ZOOM setmining with 50 BB

    No reads. Is calling profitable with just 50 BBs (had 4-to-1 to call, 5-to-1 if player to my left overcalls) ? I intended to bet/push depending on the flop if 8 hits and c/f if not.

    No, definitely not profitable in this spot. As a starting guideline I recommend looking for 15-1 implied odds to set mine, adjust up or down from there as appropriate. Here you have to call .12c more so at 15-1 you'd need to win roughly $1.80 on average when you flop a set. Including money already in the pot you would need stack action from someone, plus some additional action from at least one other player. That's highly optimistic. Unfortunately playing less than a full stack will almost always make it -EV to set min in 3b pots.
