I was passive for a long time waiting for appropriate cards to come and this came. It is little loose pre-flop but I thought I had decent image on the table. I request Pro views. Thank You.

I know you request pro opinions but here is VERY non pro opinion! First of all 11c turbo not many realize image, thus this is fold pre EVERY time for me. If I get to flop I am check/folding, I might check/call small bet, In the end we are on T high flush draw. Villain in this spot either has you beat or better FD. Remember this is just fish opinion hehe


Double Bracelet Winner

Apologies Roslyn_akka;

I didn't mean that when I wrote pro opinions. I very much welcome your opinion and I agree. I didn't play that great there. Best of luck!!

Hi vjg,

I too am folding this pre in an .11c turbo. The strength of this hand on shallow money is fold equity, and this format we have the least of it.

On the flop I would fold to his shove. We are getting 1.67-1 on a call, and are probably up against a range that is top pair+ and some bigger flush draws. On balance we probably need closer to 2-1 to call off here. Because you chose the really small c-bet sizing, I'd fold to this shove. If you plan to get it in vs. a villain shove, then I'd c-bet more like 6bb, which increases fold equity on your semi-bluff and gives you a price of 2.6-1 to call a shove committing you to the hand.
