This hand is from my Team Full Ring session yesterday.Since it is 2NL Zoom, I don't have much info on the villan. Since he is in the bb, I put him on a pretty wide range pf. The flop seemed ok for my overpair, but the reraise on the turn made me doubt my hand. With so much in the pot already, I expected all the chips to go in on the river if I continued. Is this an standard folding spot, or is there a better approach?

This hand is from the same 2NL session. No need to comment on this one. It is just an example of "Right move, wrong result"

Go Team Full Ring!

This is a really tough spot.
You need to call $0.33 to make a pot of $1.75, to be honest I think I'm calling here and see what happens on the river.
a 7 could definitely be in his range because he's in the bb and 2 players in before so probably overcalling suited connectors or suited gappers, maybe A7s as well. At 2nl I think a lot of players could do this with TPTK as well though, or even QQ. It really depends on the player and if you have any notes on them, but i think id definitely be seeing the river, even if its -ev. Trying to get a showdown as cheaply as possible, if he checks just check behind.

Hi Roland,

Without any villain reads or info, I think this is a fold for sure. Baluga theorem at work here, we are going to be beat a lot in this spot. Definitely think the bet is fine, and I like the bet/fold line unless I have some info that indicates I should be willing to continue/stack off here.
