This is what I was thinking, meaning, my decision should be push or fold. If I just call, the pot will be $29.55, and villain will have only $9.20 left in his stack. Which means if he pushes the river I'll be getting 4.2/1 at that point. Am I really going to fold there?
Obviously I'm calling the river if I fill up. Maybe I can get away from it if a fourth spade or straight card comes on the river. But if villain is drawing at that one-card flush or straight, don't I want the money in now? If a blank falls, am I losing value by checking behind the river if he checks?
With deeper stacks, this is an obvious call only and hope I fill up on the river. But as played, with these stack sizes
, is my turn decision now a push or fold one (heavily leaning towards push)? Or is calling the best play?
I honestly don't know the answer.
