Question

You’ve been playing at your local casino for the past few hours. The table is lamentably tight; you’re currently awaiting a table change. In this hand a player from middle position raises to $15 and both the button and the small blind call.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Raise

Obviously folding is not a bad play. However, you can do something a little different. With a raise and two callers there is already a good pot brewing. The players have been playing fairly tight and there is a good chance that a squeeze play will work in this spot. Three-bet here to $55ish and hope to take the pot down. The original raiser will have to worry about the two cold-callers behind him and the cold-callers, who have shown no aggression in this pot, will be forced to fold their weak pocket pairs and/or decent aces to the three-bet.
