Another hand a little while later

I had only recently joined the table, but the guy who shoved had done it twice already out of 5 hands. Was my call good, or did I need more information?

Fold if you've no information.

Calling is a -ev play in Holdem. You hit lucky but did you really know what you were up against?

Hey christxof

Eeek! Well this spot doesn't occur very often but when it does I like to call. Especially as he's shipped it twice in the last 5 hands. He is shoving 36 bb's so I assume right away that he is a weak player.

I think a lot of the time we are flipping but some of the time we have him crushed so I like a call.

Nice hold xD , Chris.
