stud8 too stubborn?

4 handed cash game part of a mix with 1/8th antes

3rd: xx3 bi, xx8 complete, xx7 fold, I call (4T)T, bi folds
4th: xx8A bets, I call (4T)TK
5th: xx8A3 bets, I call (4T)TK7
6th: xx8A36 bets, I call (4T)TK7 J
7th: xx8A36x bets, I call (4T)TK7 J (4)

Fold 3rd? I only called bc shorthanded. From there am I locked in? What if the Ace villain caught 4th was a low different low card?

Re: stud8 too stubborn?

I’d fold fourth and definitely fold fifth. Calling down praying to chop is never a good spot.

Re: stud8 too stubborn?

lol wrote up a huge stud analysis. wrong game.

fold 4th and 5th. its about having the best hand, its about realizing its equity. you get shortchanged whenever it is best and pay the max every time its not. in other words, your equity runs close but (get scooped) : (scoop) blows.

3rd is meh and probably fussy to get right. I doubt there's a big difference between what the bi plays for the complete and folds for 2bets. Unless he's a known bring in fuller, which argues for a 2bet. snap raising QLQ regardless.
