Default $10/$50 HUSNG\'s preflop all in

Can following three be called?
Opponents were relatively tight preflop.

Hand #1324116A44000020: $10 Heads-up NL Hold'em (Cake Poker)

villain (660.00 in chips)
Hero (2340.00 in chips)

Hero: posts small blind $15
villain: posts big blind $30
Dealt to Hero [ A [img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] T [img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] ]
Hero: raises to $90
villain: is all in
Hero: ?

Here is a similar situation:

Hand #13241168AF000078: $50 Heads-up NL Hold'em
Seat 3: villain(700.00 in chips)
Seat 8: Hero(2300.00 in chips)
Hero: posts small blind $25

1. Need to be ahead 570/1320 = 43%
2. Need to be ahead 600/1400 = 43%
3. Need to be ahead 1000/2800 = 36%

1. Usually fold, raise smaller PF.

I'd fold this. Villain has 22BB to start the hand, and (depending on reads) a shove is usually quite strong. He'd need to be pushing something like [AK-A8, 99+, KQ] for you to be good, and that's still close (45%). This would depend strongly on reads. This is one of the reasons I like a smaller PFR here.

2. Usually call unless he's a super-nit

At 14BB, you can probably expect somebody to be shoving more hands in this spot (again read-dependent), and AJ is worth a few more % points of equity. Against the range above, you've got nearly 49%, so I'd say this is a call against most opponents.

3. Usually fold, think about flatcalling his PFR

Hand 3: You're getting better odds, but the situation is worse. He raised preflop and then shoved over your 3bet. Is this the kind of opponent that does this with A9? 77? I would assume that people are shoving this fairly tight at the $50 level, and you've only got 30% equity here against [TT+, AQ+]. If he's been super-duper aggressive, this could be a call, but readless, I'd say it's a fold. Then again, if he's been super-duper aggressive, I'd flatcall the PFR and try to outplay him postflop.

Sidenote: can you PM me or post some info about the games at Cake? I'd like to know about the structure, availability and softness of games, etc. - rakeback would be pretty sweet.

You HAVE to call 3 if you 3-bet him. There's no way you should be committing 33% of your chips preflop and then folding. In this situation I generally shove. However, if this is a very tight raiser you might not shove here.

2 is call, 1 is probably a call as played, but you can fold if you minraise there.

Keep in mind effective stack to blind ratios in all of these spots.

Why? what if you don't have the odds, given what you read his RRAI range to be? I mean suppose he's willing to make the initial raise with A8, but wouldn't put in the shove without QQ+? Although I suppose your response is going to be that there aren't (m)any players like that.

I do like shoving there, but I also like flatcalling against certain opponents depending on the flow of the game.

Now, you're saying to call 1 and 3 when I suggested fold - I'm assuming this means you think people are pushing a lot wider there than I am. Is this your experience, or is there something I'm missing?
