Hi guys, in this hand I am not convinced about my fold. I have top pair nice kicker and openended straight but not blockers of diamonds. Analyzing the situation: the rival range can have a set any pair of 10, J, 4. And in its semibluff range that would be any hand with two diamonds still has 19% equity. You can also have all 98s included in diamonds. Clearly you can have a lot of hands, but in general, when a rival makes a bet of this type that you tend to think? Have you ever done it?
I think this a fold in this situation is definetly the right option. If your oponent was a shorter stack and that 2x pot would be a jam i would call it but since he has 100bb it looks like he just want to be able to shove on the river ( he should bet bigger pre and on the flop not 2x pot turn bet lol ) so, good fold
