Just Hands Across America: Part 3, South Florida

Episode 18: Bet-fold a combo draw?

Hero's hand against two likely ranges:

Scenario 1 - Relatively wide ranges for both:

First player's range is all combos of KQ, K10s, Q10s, QJs, K9s, Axd,109d-87d, 50% of K8s, A10, AK, AQ, QJo, K10o, Q10o, 

Second player's range is all combos of AK, KJ, JJ, and 66.

Against these ranges Hero has about 35% equity against the second player's 53%.

Scenario 2 - More narrow ranges for second player:

First player's range is the same: AK, KQ, K10s, Q10s, QJs, K9s, Axd,109d-87d, 50% of K8s, A10, AQ, QJo, K10o, Q10o, 

Second player's range is 50% of AK and JJ combos, and all combos of KJ and 66.

The equity calculation works out to be almost exactly the same in both scenarios.
