This is a discussion on Would You Call? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Say you have pocket 8s. And the flop comes
10 of spades 9 of spades 3 of hearts.
your opponent shoves all in and shows
I stand corrected, after thinking about it, you are the dog. He has 3 Qs - 3 Js - 4 Ks - 2 8s - 7 spades--- (assuming you do not have the 8 of spades. If you do however, you only drop his number of outs (19) by 1.
Do you have the 8 of spades?
Is this on the flop or turn? On the flop he is the favorite due to having 2 shots at the deck, on the turn you would be in better shape but still only like 2.5:1 favorite.
Hello in this case I would fold since it is very likely that he will get the diamond that he needs for his color since there are 2 cards that would be needed to complete the table and he has a good chance of getting a Diamond more.
your opponent shoves all in and shows you OJ of spades. Do you call? or do you fold ? Asking because this happend in a home game and I was curious to see what others would do.
By OJ do you mean QJ of spades ?
If is it lets analise how many outs he has.
he is on a flush drawn(9), straight drawn( 3- lets put only the kings minus king of spades because 8 gives you three of a kind and possible full house) has tow over cards(6) how beats your pair. what gives him 18 outs, like there is 2 more streets we multiple by 4 he's equity is 72% in an poker calculator a got 65% what is pretty close.
having this equity in mind you only have 35% of chance to win this hand, than to be on a EV+ you should call in the same probability of stacks what is probable not happening.
