Hi didanz!

With QJs I get two limpers in front of me. Due to this being a league game, where an early exit is a severe penalty, I need to muck this preflop. If I had QQ or AQ with nobody aggressive behind me, I would make a standard raise to 50 but any other Q, including KQ is too weak and needs to be folded immediately.

If I saw the flop, I have 4 outs to hit my gutterball, so my hand is worth 8% equity from the rule of 4 and 2. I have to call 120 into a pot that will be 410, which is 29.3%. This means that on average, I expect to LOSE 21.3% of my chips each and every time that I call this bet. If I’m on a draw, whenever the pot equity is higher than my hand equity, I expect to lose chips and need to fold.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.

what stats are you looking at?

normally, I'd say tourney MTT section for tournaments or cash games for cash... but it would depend on what ones you're looking at.

If from the league games only, then the best place is in the Skill League section.
