Question

In this loose-passive Limit Hold'em game at your local casino, the play is fairly atrocious, with many hands seeing all five cards multiway. In this hand the under-the-gun player limps and player 3 raises. Players 4 and 6, as well as the cut-off and the button, all cold-call. The small blind folds, you call and the UTG player calls. Seven players to the J 3 2 flop. You check and the UTG player bets. The whole table calls, and it’s back on you.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Raise

You have the nut-flush draw. There are six other players in the hand. If you raise they will all call. You are building the pot for when you hit your flush. When pots are multiway and you have a draw, raising to build the pot is an excellent tactic.

  • Call (42%)
  • Raise (57%)
  • Fold (2%)
