Default Re: Curtains Hand #3 (Degen)

People are talking about this one as if it is some insanely bad call or something. Well, it is marginal in some senses, but definitely not terrible or anything, certainly not without any context.

It's a hand between blinds. One should have a lot of feel for maximizing EV in such spots. It's not like "Q high? fold the river". Many villains would play this exact board in such a way that calling Q-high here is +EV. I'm not saying it's an auto-call necessarily, but it's not terrible either, IMO, especially with some read.

Also I think my opponent in this hand had 4 or 3 high or something like that.
