I can't get away from top-pair or overpair facing big pressure on a DRY board
TPTK or OP are very marginal hands when facing big pressure BUT they win so frequently that they're really difficult to give up.
Does anyone have any advice with this?
Top-pair gives me the most trouble on a dry board (I will fold to big pressure with a kicker < T as I'm usually facing a bigger kicker, an overpair, 2-pair, or set).
On a wet board it's easy to get away from one-pair to obvious straights or flushes; and get away from a straight or low flush if the board has three of a suit (have you noticed that villain always
has a good flush when the board shows three of suit).
If only I could do a real-time combo analysis (#combos I win vs. #combos I lose, and compare those odds
to my pot-odds).
1. Do I tighten-up and call only with an OP >= TT or TP >= Q
2. Do I default-fold ANY one-pair to big pressure? An OP has 2 outs and TPTK has 5 outs - insufficient odds when facing big bets/calls of 3/4 - 1 x pot, or shoves (which likely represent sets)
