When I run into situations like these, I kind of close my eyes and jam. Is this a spew or how should this be played differently? If I fold the flop, I'd just be letting myself get run over. It would be nice to see the analysis of a pro LPer. Thanks in advance.

I don't think you have much turn fold equity, so calling is better the more value heavy his flop c/r range is. The more drawy/bluffy his flop c/r range is, the more I like a turn shove.

Also we can possibly bluff some rivers when we just call the turn.

For your equity calculations, just plug the ranges into equilab.

vague question, how do you expect anyone to answer without knowing your pf range, flop betting and c/c,c/r ranges? [?] math

only obv thing is you should call his flop raise at least 52% of time, more like 60% of time realistically given his equity and 55%+ on the turn

Q8cc proly b/f on the flop

@goose58: What dictates fold equity? His hand equity vs my range right? So his decision is to call 249.45 to win 249.45 + 120 + 98 + 98, which is 44.11%. His equity vs a naked ace is 30%. My jamming range should be seen as extremely strong here, unless I'm a donking like in this particular hand (which isn't often). So his hand is foldable, right? My read was that he was on a draw and in the heat of the moment i jammed. In retrospect, his betting range contains some pretty strong hands. But a play like this imho is warranted to keep people from toying with you.

@dogmeat: You're right. I guess I don't have a fixed pf range vs people. I kind of play what I feel depending on the gameflow.

@Goldrush: Agreed. My rationale was that he near min raised me and I felt like he could do that with all his missed hands with no equity, because that's the type of player he is. My plan was to take it away from him on a later street.
