  • hand:77 board:Th 2s 5s As

    I did realy have a read, the only thing i knew was that villian_6 made a couple of good laydowns. Did I play the hand well?

    Fold flop, if you were versus only villain 6, a call or a shove on the flop makes a lot more sense.
    But versus 2 players already in the pot and 1 behind you, you are rarely ahead there, and mostly drawing to 2 outs.
    So yeah, click that fold button on the flop.

      Hi booy.f! With 77 and two limpers in front of me, I'm more than happy to limp behind and see a flop to try to set mine. The BB's stack is a bit light for it (I want my stack and all of the opps to have 15X the bet in their stack), but with multiple opps in, it'll make up for it. The flop totally misses me and now I need to see if I have the odds to call. I need to call 600 into a pot that will be 2625 (22.9%). With a pair, I have 2 outs and from the rule of 4 and 2, each out is worth 2% equity to the turn... so my hand is worth 4%. Since the pot equity is higher than my hand equity by a large amount, this is an easy fold on the flop, as I only want to call if my hand is worth more than the pot equity. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)
