Core is working

MrFussMrFuss Red Chipper Posts: 21 ✭✭
After more than a decade hiatus from poker Im getting back into it and working through my first pass with core. Prior to core im not sure I would have made this call but with all the knowledge and tools im picking up here on RCP it was an easy call and paid off. This hand isnt super interesting but felt great in the moment making the call based on solid theory rather than wishes and prayers.

Any insights are appreciated, especially regarding the cbet as thats my focus this week.
Thanks :)

    I'm intrigued as to why this is an easy call. EP limp-calls are often medium pairs. As to the c-bet, I would have gone a little smaller.

    Maybe easy is exaggerated. But in comparison to any methods I had prior it felt easy.

    I think V bets a medium overpair. Im committed with 2.5 SPR and getting almost 2:1. Check raise doesnt make any sense unless V hit a set or has draws which I cant be afraid of. Even with only 22 hand history V had been playing fast.

    When I reviewed the hand the next day these are ranges I put him on and after doing the math it came out to be a solid call so I felt pretty good about it. However I have a lot of dust to knock off and new theory to digest so if Im missing anything Id be pleased to know.

    Even if I add 88, 77, 66 equity is still 34%
