Absolute worst card. Any 5 turns a straight. Any 2 diamonds turns a flush. 50BB shove... anyone calling here? I'm assuming he has A5 which is why he shoves; he doesn't want any callers with a random diamond.

What do you think?

Final Pot: $20.50
BTN wins $19.50
(Rake: $1.00)


  1. How many hands did you see him at 41/0? If he just sat down he might be protecting a high pair like 10's and representing the flush. Otherwise, not worth risking your bankroll by calling.

  2. I think you made a good laydown -- no use losing a big pot with 6-4.

  3. Considering he cold-called a bet and raise then shoved on the turn, yet his stats show he's pretty passive, I'd say it is a pretty safe fold.
