  • How do we play in this 21% equity situation?

    Pot: 10bb
    Hero: 8s8c in position
    Flop: 9s4c5c
    BB Villain bets 7bb

    If I assign villain sensible range of top pair or better, flush draws and OESD, we have just 21% equity. 79% of his range is top pair or better.

    Should we even call a flop bet? I don't think so.

    This is a situation where I would always think oh, this could easily be a draw and I'd call, but the equity is awful.

    Lesson: without top pair against a drawy board that we aren't drawing to, fold is default.

    Raising turn on flush cards might be a consideration, but I don't think that's enough to make eights profitable, even if they always fold.

    if they always fold , that's going to tip the scale.

    you didn't put yourself on a range...

      I call here at least 1 street

      ok bet is quite big

      But think about vs how many overcards you are ahead at the Moment

      also you have bdfd and bdsd and 2 outs to a set

      you will get exploited by good players if you fold too often

      you have the positional advantage , a lot of good things can happen on turn

      they can give up , you can bet or Check behind or raise if the turn is a 8 , club or 6 or 7

      i think you should not fold here As a default facing no overbet

        What position did you open from?
        Was there an ante?
        How much did you open for?
        Is this cash or a tournament?
        If it's cash what stakes?
        What are the effective stacks?

          This.

          There is so much important information missing from your question, that it is not possible to give a quality answer.

            As per kkep and NIVVY's comment, you just haven't given us nearly enough information to go on.
