Help!!! Should I have called the raise???



Hello all. This hand is taken from a 180 player SNG. 25 hands into it. I know this might have been a good fold at the time, but I would like to know what u guys think.

So, the question, did I do the correct thing by folding, should I have called or was their an argument to reraise???

The raise by AllinAction means very little as he has been aggressive since the game started.

From a pot odds perspective, there's 480 in the pot and it's 100 to call, so you need about 17% equity. You have 4 outs to make your straight, so that's about 8% to hit. Depends really on how much action (you need at least another 500) you think you can get on the turn and river if the turn is a Ten. Given the number of callers you probably will get sufficient action. You also have a backdoor flush which is worth another out over the turn and river. So this is one of the few opportunities where drawing to the gutshot may be worthwhile. It's pretty marginal though so don't feel too bad about folding it.


Hey bomb you mean 8% that itd hit on turn right?

And 16% that itd hit on either turn or river?

Im curious as to how someone should relate pot odds to calling.

If youre getting 5-1 pot odds and a flop bet, and 5-1 or slightly better chance to hit your card, dyou call that or dyou worry about not hitting on turn and what itd cost you then?


plays poker on hard mode
I'd have folded here as well. There's only a ~8% chance of hitting your T on the turn, and with the action you have to consider that someone might price you out on the turn and not give you even close to decent odds to see the river. You shouldn't feel bad about folding here, in my opinion.


Easy fold IMO, what do you do on the turn if you miss? Im assuming with 3/4 people in pot there will be a bet(maybe a raise too) and i doubt it will be 100 chip bet and you will be forced to fold.

Its a $20 tournament so i doubt you will get to see the river^^^. 1 of your 10s is prbly in the muck so your ~7 to hit it on the turbn. IMO you are being very results orientated and made the right move.


Easy fold IMO, what do you do on the turn if you miss?
You fold, unless it's really cheap to see the next card. It's a longshot and you don't expect to hit, but you're just relying on the 1 time in 12 when you do hit to make it a good call.
