You accidentally raise to 100 with 72o. The table rock ships for 200. You know this old man will only ship pre flop with KK,AA. You still call?!?
Or worse still, you open for 50 with 72o, the table rock min-raises to 100 with 100 effective behind with a slightly looser range of AK, QQ+. You still call? What exactly will you be hoping to hit on the flop with your call? Your odds of flopping 2-pair (using your two cards) is 28:1, the odds of flopping trips is 72:1. If you flop a pair are you still putting your remaining 100 in? I am interested how you can mathematically justify calling a raise that effectively commits you pre flop against a somewhat decent player who is not raising up any two.
