    iPoker – £0.50 NL (2 max) – Holdem – 2 players

    Hero (SB): 181.58 BB
    BB: 34.68 BB (VPIP: 81.82, PFR: 45.45, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 14)

    Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

    Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has 4 K

    Hero raises to 2 BB, BB calls 1 BB

    Flop: (4 BB, 2 players) 9 J 7
    BB checks, Hero bets 2.8 BB, BB raises to 5.6 BB, Hero calls 2.8 BB

    Turn: (15.2 BB, 2 players) 5
    BB checks, Hero checks

    River: (15.2 BB, 2 players) A
    BB bets 5 BB, fold

    BB wins 14.44 BB

    Q. Is this a good spot to shove?

    A. I think so. There are likely many draws and this is a min raise so it doesn’t look like villain is trying to protect a TP hand against any draws I might have.

    If we assume that villain is min-raising with all his decent* 7x, 8x, 9x and Tx plus a bunch of decent flush draws of his own then we have 47% equity plus a lot of fold equity!

    Q2. Should we do the same when we don’t have the overcard?

    A2. Without an overcard I simply call and take the odds. A hand like 42s here has 37% equity which is a big difference.

    With AK here we would be ahead of that range with 58%.

    * I arbitrarily used all hands north and west of the pocket pairs on the range chart to consider what hands might be considered “decent”.

    I personally would only call here , maybe shoving is fine , but we are holding 2 spades , so it’s less likely he has a spade draw , T8 is already a straight , and in my experience 35bb deep he will call all made hands of you raise after he Xr flop

    Like Jon said, we don’t usually have a lot of fold equity versus short stacks, so I would just take my cheap equity. I might jam a combo draw or a FD with two overcards, where we really don’t care if we get called.

    why would we shove? vs tp 2.pair we are behind. fold equtiy is less as in 100BBs spots.

    Worst non MAde Hand for a shove would be 2overs+Flushdraw . as we would be ahead his TP 

    no matter how hard it is or how bad it gets i'm going to make it
