I recently asked Bart this question in an email and thought I'd put it on this forum where people can comment. Many times in a limped pot we end up in tough spots playing a hand we normally wouldn't because we're in the blinds. Here's my question. Please answer Bart and others feel free to comment as well:
How do you handle top pr bad kicker with several people in a limped pot in the blinds 1. With a dry board 2. With a wet board. I had tonight j6o on a j 7 2 dry board. I could’ve checked. The guy on the btn limped in w qj. I bet he called. I know now I’m not good. If I chk and he bets and I call and everyone else folds, now what? He could be just trying to steal last to act and if I chk again and he bets again, well if hes capable of double barreling its tough. I could call again than fold to a river bet but its cheap to just bet the flop vs chk calling twice. Now on a wet boardI can get called by draws and should charge the draws on protect but it sucks with top pr lousy kicker. What do you do in that case?
