Question

First hand of a live No-Limit Hold'em tournament at your local casino. You raise to $150 and get calls from Players 3, 5 and 7. Everyone else folds. The flop comes down 4 T 9.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Check

You’re out of position against two callers on the first hand of the event and you have no pair, no draw. This is no time to continuation bet into two players. Just check. If you can’t resist betting, a small bet is better than a large one.

  • Continuation bet $300 (17%)
  • Continuation bet $450 (11%)
  • Check (72%)
