Re: AJos in the BB against a limper and a sb raiser.

[ QUOTE ]
Why do we call the flop 3-bet if we are planning on folding the turn unimproved?

[/ QUOTE ]
Good point. I think folding to the flop three bet is good.

Re: AJos in the BB against a limper and a sb raiser.

3betting preflop might be good if it will knock out UTG and then you'll have position for the rest of the hand. If you don't think utg will fold, I like just calling. SB usually has a very good...

Re: KQ - weak turnfold?

I think some guys will semibluff with a single diamond here sometimes. This guy is aggro enough to do it. The pot is not that big and it might cost you two bets to get to showdown, so folding...

Re: QQ hand, value bet river?

I think this is a bet and fold to a raise situation.

Re: I value call my nuts?

With two players left to act and button maybe raising, I like the turn call.

Re: 5/10 3handed: spewing?

FLOP: I usually fold the flop. You're usually behind. You have nothing but overcards, if you have six outs you could call, but you can't count on six outs. Say you have three outs. It's a...

Re: Play along TPTK against 3bettor and unknown/fish

FLOP: 3bet

TURN: If you had three bet the flop and SB bet out the turn, I would call and fold to a river bet UI. The way you played it, I call but am not so sure if I should call another bet on...

Re: How much action? With context

I'd put that cap in on the turn, and then if he bets out on the river I'd just call. If he checked the river, I'd bet and call a c/r.

Re: Do I need to pay this off??

RIVER: I would fold.

PS: PREFLOP: I also fold A9o unless I'm first in from MP on which I raise.

Re: Semibluffing the turn

Semi-bluff derives it's value from the times you improve and win the extra bet plus the times you get the other guy to fold a better hand on the spot. If he never folds or won't fold enough of the...

Re: decent turn raise

If you knock out MP on the turn, don't improve on the river and SB checks the river, I'll usually check thru, figuring to be good a little less than half the time.

Re: Sexy?

I'll often three bet the turn. I think more often he made an OESD than he specifically has QJ (or J7 or 76) for the made straight. He could be on a combined straight and flush draw also, or he...

Re: JJ vs fish

I'm folding to that turn raise just about every time.

Stats:
I think you can defend your BB more.

Take a break and cool off. Do some poker book reading, then come back. Maybe play some...

Re: How was this hand played (1/2 6max)

I call the turn only because we have outs.

I fold the river UI. Who is raising that turn on that board and betting again on the river that is not ahead of one pair?

Re: AQ vs a utg limper

Preflop: Given your read, I wouldn't three bet him OOP.

River: I think he has to give you some credit for trip Queens, so I'd just call his raise.

Edit: Maybe I misunderstood what you've seen...

Re: AJ, too weak?

FLOP: Overcards: 3 outs; BD Flush to Jack high: 1 out; BD straight: 1 out. Total 5 outs. I think it's a pretty easy call getting 9:1 before implied odds.

Re: JJ in the small blind

I generally fold when he raises the flop.

How often is he bluffing here?

It is possible he has JT for an OESD but less likely because you hold two Jacks. Would he raise an AT gutshot? ...

Re: AK calldown

Usually I'll fold the turn. I'd be surprised if he capped preflop with something your ahead of. You might have six outs, but you might only have three out or you might have none. Maybe you'll...
