  • 2nl 6max Zoom enough equity? or tough fold?

    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    Hi Everyone, In this hand i have no info on my opponent i'd played one hand against them in which they limped. preflop i isolate which is standard then i make a cbet on the flop with plenty of equity. The turn comes down its checked again my hand hand improves further so i fire the second bullet,my opponent check shoves and puts me in a slightly uncomfortable spot. I understand that the villian looks pretty strong here Q10 gets there possible sets although i think they would have played a set of 66 alot faster and 2 pair combos. My feeling is that i have so much equity here im not sure i can find a fold,im almost getting 2-1 to call and when compared with my equity i think its very close. What does everyone think here?

    Hi Nashy,

    In my opinion, you have a call here. I think his range includes some hands you beat like KQ, QJ, even QT, that he could play this way. If he hit 2 pair, you have 11 or 12 outs to improve. I find it more dificult to put him on AQ, since he may raise pre with it; maybe Q9 or a set with the worst escenario being Qs9s, and leaves 7 outs to improve. I think were good to get it in almost 2 to 1 here.

      Hi Nashy,

      Preflop iso raise is good obv, wouldn't even mind making it 5x over a weak odd-stacked limper. I think your c-bet of half the pot is too small though. I like c-betting .12-.15c here for straight value with such good hand equity.

      Betting the turn is fine here imo, and I would never fold to his shove, although I think our price should be better as it would be if we increased our bet sizing pre and post flop.

      We have a fair bit of hand equity with our draws and can even sometimes be ahead right now, like when he's spazzing out with KQ. and he can do this with some better hands we're not that far behind, like JT that slow played on the flop (we're only 57-43 dog to JT).

        i think you should call here, you have massive equity in the case that your behind but you may also be ahead here if he has a hand like onepair + straight draw like kq and decided to just shove it in. if it's close pot odds wise, then it's definitely a call if there's a chance you can be ahead in which i think you do.
