It's $3.30 Progressive Super Knock Out. 10mins blind level. Not ITM yet.

What should I do here?

I think most probably you will say call and then what do I do when he 1/2 pot bet on any turn (Except Q coz then I will move him in ). On turn pot will be 16730 once I call and he has 16958, so if he moves all-in or bets 8200 (i.e. 1/2 pot = 1/2 his stack) what am I gonna do?

What is the future plan !

PS: I summarize it either we need to go all-in now or fold, coz on turn he will just have pot bet left in his stack. So I don't think I can call here and play pray poker that it goes check-check on turn & river.
So if I should move all-in then why and if I should fold then why? (Calling is highly risky as we need to pray that he slows down)

Hi adi,

I think this is a pretty straight forward fold tbh. This board hits part of his preflop limp/calling range really hard, and that's the part that would conceivably be putting in a big flop check-raise. He's been playing 23/10 over a limited sample, so we can't really rule out sets, especially 77, but even 99 or TT. Mid-range suited connecters and 1 gappers also fit the bill, so T9, 97, 68 are in there. The hands that might go nuts which we are ahead of now will still have a fair bit of equity as they'll usually include an 8, like T8, 98, 87... so we're either ahead by a small amount or way behind much of the time. Just fold and move on with 42bb imo.
