  • Is this draw strong enough?

    1st hand out. Should I have folded pre, getting almost 6:1? Do I have enough equity to shove? I put him on either A8, a good diamond draw (like KdQd) or maybe an overpair (which he had, although I thought overpairs raise more preflop). Don't think he folds any of these, so no fold equity. Oh, and a major problem: Poker Stove seems to be gone, and I could not find any other equity calculator either. Please help!

    Hi Olaf,

    "(which he had, although I thought overpairs raise more preflop)" The problem is this is not the preflop raiser you're shoving on, it's a preflop caller just like you (and he chose not to raise at all with TT!). Because he's a caller I would rate this board texture to hit him harder than it would a preflop raiser, so your ranging is off. He can have 2 pairs, sets, 89, combo draws etc.

    That said, it looks like this is a hyper turbo? With such shallow stacks if I did call preflop I would go with this strong a connection to the flop, but I really don't like it. The real problem is the preflop call imo, with starting stacks of 25bbs we really don't have this kind of room to speculate, and 97s derives a lot of it's preflop value from post flop implied odds and fold equity... both of which are in very short order on this depth of money.
