i was given a free card i'll take it

postflop - nice flop for me cause i hit OE i don't shove first to assess my opp

big stack bets 50% and another opp called

i only have 10BB's and lots of chips in the pot already i know i don't have fold equity but i like to risk it here because the of the pot size winning here can let me play a little poker

losing here it's ok im bound to flip it anyway the next hand if i chose to give up this hand why not flip it now with a bigger pot

Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

hit my card got chips to play my big 11

Hi Marvin,

I would generally let this go. I agree with you that we likely don't have much fold equity, and I also normally don't mind gambling to chip up when short, but once there is a bettor and caller we will have a certain % of the time where we're drawing to a split pot (like where one of them has QJ for instance so they're winning with their pair and have the same draw we do). If you wanted to gamble in this spot it's better to just lead and leverage fold equity rather than let them bet then check-raise a somewhat nominal amount where they will call you with 3rd pair. If you just lead and get 3rd pair to fold that's a big bonus.
