Question

In your six-max game online, you raise to $8 from the cut-off. The aggressive regular calls on the button and the flop comes J 8 9. You bet $18 and he calls. The turn comes 4. You bet $42 and he calls. The river comes J.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet All-in

The best play here is to bet all-in. It's unlikely that your opponent has a flush or a full house. Usually an aggressive opponent will raise both flush draws and straights on this flop. His most likely holding is a jack. He probably won't fold a jack here if your image is at all aggressive, so shove all-in for value.

  • Check/Call (34%)
  • Bet $50; fold if raised (27%)
  • Bet All-in (29%)
