Believing in the maths and to call with any 2 cards?

A hyper bubble is scary to lose 3 blinds out of 11 behind sitting in the bb.

Also as the chip leader do you want to mess up now? At least I have a >>Q-rag<<

Wow result and I have a few more chips to take it down. The any 2 cards does work sometimes.

Hi ForrestFive!

The key here is to see if the hand has more equity than the equity that we have to put into the pot to call.

To call is 262 chips into a pot that will be 860 (30.5%). I now go to pokerstove to see if Q2o has this much equity and also to see where it's a breakeven play.

The opp here, only having less than 4BB should be shoving a really wide range. Q2o has 30% equity against a top 20% range. Therefore, if the opp would be playing a wider range than 20%, it's a call. If their range is tighter than 20%, it's a fold.

With the range that a less than 4BB player should be playing, I'm calling this all day long.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
