re: Poker & EV Question
I think eV means "Expected Value," not "Expectation Value," but I may be wrong.
I think you leave out some important information. How much were the blinds at the time and how much more was there to call? Were you short-stacked a la ATC situation (compared to folders)? If so, it's perfectly reasonable to make your stand when you have a big pot odds
situation. Or was it mid-tourney and you had a big M? If that's the case, why play such a speculative hand? If you could play it cheaply, yeah sure. But if you're putting a big dent (SB was at half your stack) in a healthy stack just to call out of position with a rotten hand - why do that - even with good pre-flop pot odds
? That's a dangerous play because of exactly what happened. You're out of position and the flop and turn are just good enough to suck you in.
Also, you say you were pot committed. I think that's an over-used and misunderstood phrase. If you were truly pot-committed, then why didn't you commit with an all-in? Would you have folded to the SB's all-in? Then you weren't pot-committed. But if you WERE pot committed, use your fold equity, go all in as soon as you are pot committed (if you in fact are) and stop giving free cards.
The pot was $6800 plus whatever your blind was. If your blind was $100 and you were making a $6800 call with your cards - probably a bad play. I think you're asking for somebody to work out the math. I'd like to see that too.
But if your blind was $6000 and you were making an $800 call into a $12,800 - you have position on the SB who has only $3000 chips left - so probably a good play then. See how all the little details matter?
Your new picture throws me? Where's the face of that friendly Ozarks tile-setter we all grew to know and love?
