We all know how its a bummer when we loose for a higher or even worse IMHO a 1 card higher flush! In your case would be the Qh.
Anyway, my point is if you loose that hand you would be stack leveled with the table in the worst case. And from there, you can always climb up!
But the odds
that he has something we can beat are worse than the odds that he beats us. Not a good play to call, unless for some reason, we have more information to go on.
He’s certainly not shoving a
here, meaning that we beat about 1 card he could have (and he actually had that card, the
) So we beat 1 of 4 combos. You might be able to throw the
into his range giving us 2 of 5 but still not good enough.
3:1 or 3:2 means we need 75% and 60% equity here. We’re getting $10,250:$8,600, which gives us approximately 6:5 pot odds
and we’re getting $18,850/$8,600 on our money, which is roughly 1.25:1. Not good enough, unless, like I said, we have more information to go – i.e. he’s bluffing >60% of the time; but that’s a pretty tough sell.
I really wanted to call and obviously that would have been right in this case, but over time we lose big on the same decision.
