  • Flop ($120) 8c5d5h Villain (BB) checks, UTG+1 bets $30, MP calls, Hero raises to $105, Villain plays with his chips for about 30 seconds and then raises to $305, folds to Hero? Hero calls. Turn ($780) 8c5d5h 6h Villain bets $400, Hero ra…
  • I love turning your hand into a bluff here. He never has you beat unless he leads turn with a set or two pair and your hand looks so much like a FH on river. I would bet large on river to get him off a chop. His most likely holding when he bets turn…
  • I really think you are chopping here or are up against 69 the majority of the time. He doesn't raise this turn with a set or two pair. He may occasionally be free rolling you with a 6 and hearts but that's few combos. If you were up against a thinki…
  • JCW I had a very similar hand go down last night where I had KK and got donked into on paired flop and I mucked. UTG limps, Hero raises to $20 with KK, button calls, limper calls. Flop $60 TT7hh UTG bets $50 with ~$375 behind. Hero folds. Base…
  • The only hands I see you value owning yourself against in Hand 2 is AT, A9, and AJ off suit with one diamond. The problem is I'm not sure if he's calling with bare trips enough to offset the times he has one of these 3 hands. It's super close I thin…
  • with $260 and flopping a set find a way to get the money in and all is good. The way you played this hand is absolutely fine.

  • Pretty easy call i think given the flop action and his stack size. You are ahead minimum 50% of time here i think.
  • So I think I made a big mistake in this hand and I actually just shoved for $500 total. Everyone ended up folding pretty quickly. I figured if I got it in with original raiser he would have QQ+ or AK which I'm not doing great against but also not ho…
  • I thought that if I raised smaller my hand would look more like a value hand than a draw. I actually think I made it $350 not $300.
  • Yah that's a pretty good analysis and along the lines of what I was thinking. Hand #1 it just sucks that there's so much dead money in pot and we only really have to get through original raiser to have best hand here.
  • Yah I ended up bet/calling $85 on turn which I think was a mistake and bet folding $85 would have been better. AA hand was against a super whale that opened MP to $35 and I called SB with KJdd and BB calls. Flop KsJs8d, I check, he bets $75, I ra…
  • Ok so seems getting it in is fine. I ended up making it $300, he instantly shoved and he scooped with A5 off suit.
  • The reason I didn't bet flop was due to straddle that only had $300. I could only fire one c-bet and I didn't see it getting through often enough.
  • Villain was a late 30s guy that seemed to be somewhat competent but definitely still a recreational player. He was playing pretty straightforward in the session but I had only played with him for maybe 90 minutes and hadn't seen him get out of line.…
  • I either bet close to pot looking to get called by a 6... OR I bet $50 on river, hoping he spazzes out with air or even raises with a 6. It's pretty dependant on if I think he will spazz.
  • He ended up calling me and the turn completed the flush, I shoved he called and I scooped. No idea what he had but obviously not higher spades.
  • Shove the flop given stack sizes and I don't think any other option is even close to as good. Given flop call, shove the turn. Given turn call, I don't think you have the best hand here often on the river but you're getting pretty great odds. Also w…
  • Yes I agree this is a fold on the flop and that is what I ended up doing without too much thought. My questions are more about whether or not the 3-bet is bad and if I should be checking or betting this flop to this type of villain.
  • I think this is an easy shove on flop given stack sizes and any other line is pretty bad. Especially with how you have described villain.
  • Limper was UTG+1, Villain is MP1 or MP2 can't remember specifically. I had seen him open several times in MP to this exact size in the last 2 hours so his range is fairly wide. My reason for 3-betting was a combination of value and as a bluff. I th…
  • Also, lets throw out some hypothetical situations that may arise. Let's say he flat calls my $110 flop bet, who is betting again on turn and who is checking turn?
  • I actually think you played the hand fine. I would probably have led turn but if I checked turn I am calling against this villain as he could be betting worse for value on turn. The river is very close I think between a check fold and a check call f…
  • I would also like to see more of these somewhat more basic hands that don't necessarily make it all the way to the river. Then when the hand ends I would like to hear discussion about hypothetical situations that may come up on turn/river, etc...
  • Hey Bart,

    One of my favorite hands I've seen in a while came up in this video as I think it was an example of a very basic concept that occurs reasonably frequently. I'm talking about JCW's QJo where he check-raise bluffs K high dry board…
  • For the reasons Wendy explained you need to bet large. I'd bet $100, expecting to only get called by full houses or Qc, maybe Tc. He isn't calling a bet on river even small with a 1 pair hand so no point in betting small.
  • Yah David I was thinking along your lines. I thought his most likely value hand on river was an OP with a club. I do like the line of leading turn and then leading river as well and I think betting 3/4 pot on turn and river gets the job done as w…
  • These flop spots I bet as well when checked to. The reason is that I know when called I'm usually not good but I feel I can often take the pot away later anyway. I also think you fold out a lot of mid pocket pairs and you get hands with significant …
  • I figured my hand looks so strong when I bet the turn that if I made a large bet I'm basically never getting called by worse so I ended up sizing it smaller planning on bet/folding the turn. I ended up checking river and he bet $200 and I folded. I'…
  • When I read up until the flop my instinct was to check raise flop to $400 and call it off, or jam any turn for remaining $550. If you think he is 3 betting a pretty polarized range, you get value from AKo, AQ (with Qc), and maybe even hands like QQc…
