  • It doesn’t look great for you when he jams, but recs will show up with some weird hands when you underrep your hand. I could easily see him with a worse ace here if he thinks you would never check an ace on the flop. I would reluctantly call.
  • Well, if he stacked off with 5x on 9876x board, that makes me want to bet and get it in. You still beat more combos than you lose to. I’d like to hear others’ thoughts. Can we bet-fold something like $120 or do we risk folding the best hand if he ov…
  • I wouldn’t think villain would call a check-raise with a T or 99-77 very often though.
  • So what is that $15 opening range? And what of that range does he bet pot on the flop with?
  • I know I’m getting here after the reveal, and I know you were pretty deep, but this seems like a clear bet on the end once he checks to you. You’ll value-own yourself every once in a while, but he could still have some calling hands that will pay of…
  • Interesting spot. You block the hands he could have that you beat (AA and AK). Stack sizes make this awkward. Would hate to bet $120 and get check-raised all-in. The question is, what does his unusual raise size (for him) do to his range? Are you s…
  • Welcome to the site. I agree, why check-raise the turn? Your hand looks like the best hand on the turn, but it is still a bluff-catcher. You’re not getting better hands to fold or worse hands to call. (Funnily enough he had the one hand better than …
  • If he’s a bad, loose player, I’d just bet $200 and call the rest if he shoves. Like you pointed out, there are a lot of hands he could have that you beat, and there’s only a pot-sized bet left.
  • Sure you might be beat, but I’m never folding this. You threw him the rope on the river, and he took it. It’s a big bet, scary, but you can’t fold.
  • What Fuzzy said. You have no fold equity, so no point in jamming, but you do have correct odds to draw. Just call, and jam if you make your hand. Preflop works only if you see the table limp-folding a bunch. Getting three limpers to do that is opti…
  • You could make up some contrived examples to say otherwise, but in general you should be going broke with the second nuts vs. the nuts and not feel bad about it.
  • Definitely want to try to stack the straddle since he didn’t reraise on flop. Probably just shove. Less than pot-sized bet left.
  • You obviously call as played for $500 more. Raising or calling the flop is a good question. A thinking player will peg you as having a king either way. The question is, is the villain good enough to fold a king himself? If he is, then I’d just call.
  • You have the best hand here 90 to 95 percent of the time, and the pot is so big now that you’d have to get the rest in on the turn even if a spade rolled off. If you ran into a bigger set or 54 here, don’t sweat it. It happens. Incidentally, at so…
  • I agree with Shaman. A little too weak to iso with against someone you expect will call. Would barrel turn and give up on the river if you miss.
  • It’s far more likely he has AQ or KK than he has you beat. You are very deep. If you were only 600-700 effective, I’d say just raise and get it in. I’m never folding. The main question would be if you think this guy will fold a hand like AQ if you …

  • This is painful, but lacking any other read, I think you have to fold. Is he turning 76 into a bluff? He can’t be raising all-in with just a king, right? Super loose preflop doesn’t mean super loose for a river raise.
    in $2/5 Shrug Call? Comment by JLBJ June 18
  • After all the calls, even though it’s a single-raised pot, the SPR is 2. Sometimes you will be beat, but this is a shrug-call.
  • What about preflop? He makes it 15K, do you think he has other than AA or KK enough to just get it in for 50K?
  • Piggy’s point is the key one for me: If he’s a thinking player at all, then he knows you have at least Ax on the turn, so it would be suicide to try to bluff you off trip aces. It’s not 100 percent. I’ve seen thinking players commit suicide at the …
    in 1/2 A8s in the SB Comment by JLBJ June 3
  • I knew I was getting too good a price to fold. I called and folded when he jammed on a 333 flop. Do you think he’s doing this often enough with QQ or less that I should have just jammed myself?
  • I get that it’s a weird line for him to take to check-call the flop, but your call on the turn is extremely thin, especially at these stakes. He has to put you on an ace, so his betting the river is also scary. Of course sometimes it’s hard for peo…

  • I’d make it 100. Folding an overpair is a lot easier in theory than practice, especially on the flop. Build a pot.
  • Both of these are folds in these games. People just aren’t bluff-raising the turn very often. First one is a lot closer than second one. The second one is a questionable c-bet, in my opinion, in a four-way pot. Rather check and see how it develops.…
  • He’d have to show AK or K9 to me. Call.
  • Bluffing two people on the river is ambitious, though there’s not many hands that would be checking this flop through then calling a 3/4-pot bet on the turn. AT would be one of those hands though. I would give up. But I would also fold pre. Don’t t…
  • If you feel confident he won’t get away from top pair, then happily get it in. Like Cycle said, your hand is face up when you shove, but that never stops some people from calling with top pair.
  • The default would be to fold the turn, unless you see him as someone often using check-raise bluffs. Then he follows up on the river. I think you have to let this one go, unless you have a specific read that he gets out of line.
  • Jam. If he minraised turn then checked the river with 99 or 86, he just gets to take your money.
  • Did you mean you had KhQh? Because your hand history has you flopping the nuts.
