After attending live trainings the point of the maths call with any 2 cards does come up frequently.

Then add to that I have got it wrong so many times and should protect my chip lead with 20bb behind not even close to the blubble.

So blinds 100/200 no anti, I have posted the bb and the sb folded adding 100 to the pot.

Pot odds looked about about 2 : 1 and I had Q2 soooted so called.

These micro stingers are not good with <18bb, 7 handed and only 3 get paid - the lags become nits.

I >>boomed the hand<< to check it out later 915/415 chips looks correct.

Only another 900 trials to go I think I'm down 99/1 so far.

Hi Forrest,

Looks like a standard call to me.

Probably almost any two since you have a decent chip lead already.

But with a Q high and suited and think it makes it fairly easy.


Quad Bracelet Winner

Yeah, with those pot odds, you only need 31% equity. You'd have more than that if villain was only shoving the top 11% of hands, but his range should be a lot wider than that.
