Question

Early stages of an online multi-table tournament. Players 1 and 2 limp and you raise to $80 from middle position. Only Player 1 calls. Flop heads-up of 3 K J. He checks; you bet $150. He calls. Turn 5.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet $400

If you bet $400 when he calls there will be $1,310 in the pot and you can comfortably shove the river. If you bet any less to get all-in on the river, you have to overbet.

  • Bet $250 (36%)
  • Bet $400 (55%)
  • Check (8%)
