Default Newb wrap question

Is this an easy call? I honestly had no clue, so I folded.

I was pretty sure it was TT vs KK.

Long ago I published a wrap nomenclature, which bears repeating in such circumstances:

English wrap - 13 outs plus
American/Canadian wrap - 8 outs or less
Swedish/Nordic/Cold Country wrap - 4 outs or less

So, what do you call the nebulous 9-12 out straight draws...

What about the 8-12 out "wraps" what can we call those? [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Anyway, I think Dave is saying that your "wrap" isn't so great. You are blocked at the high end so you really don't have that big of a wrap. Also you don't even have any backdoor flushes. Fold looks good.

It actually turns out that against opponents specific hands you had a slightly +EV situation cause there sidecards sucked and only blocked one of your outs. But this is probably your best case scenario unless villians are complete donks playing on hold'em hand values. At best you have a slightly positive situation with a lot of varaince. You could easily have been in a worse situation here if their sidecards were coordinated. Also you could have been up against one set and another "wrapish" hand like yours which would be even worse.

Even if you were against only one opponent with top set it would be correct to call. You have 12 nut outs twice. I don't believe I would fold this hand on the flop no matter what the action.

This would be a big mistake, especially heads-up. With the OP's hand, heads up he would have been a 65/35 dog. If the Villian had something like KKQJds instead of KKQ6ds, the OP would have scooped less than 15% of the time heads up.

The OP's flop play was fine. Had he seen the hands face-up, a call would have been appropriate, but there is nothing wrong with the lay-down here.

Chimi already covered it, but HU against Top set you should fold. 12 out's twice isn't enough overlay when you don't have a ton of dead money in the pot. Remember that even if you make your straight your opponent will have at least his boat re-draws so you can hit your straight and still lose.

65-35 means you have to call 1 pot bet or raise for all your chips. Yes he could be against top set with a huge redraw, but those times should be balanced out by the times he is up against a similar wrap and the aces make him a 70% favourite or better.

If those were your case chips, then calling a pot-bet as a 65/35 is OK. Your equity still sucks, especially if it was HU to the flop meaning that you are putting in close to 50% of the chips and only expecting to get back 35% of the pot. However, unless you are short-stacked, this situation isn't going to arise that frequently.

You were the one that said a call should be made against one opponent with top set. Obviously, opening up the range of hands that your opponent has changes things, but I was simply responding to your statement and just trying to point out that all top sets are not created equal.

Actually I was just trying to b amusing [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

For 3 to 1 action, Im happy to get broke in these spots, especially if I think my foes are tight - eg they both have sets.
