Question

6-max game online. Tight-aggressive player raises from under the gun to $6. You flat-call in middle position with 9 9. Button 3-bets to $22. UTG flat-calls. You call. Flop 6 7 8. UTG checks. You bet $50. Button ships all-in for $140. UTG folds and it's to you.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Call

With your bet on the flop and his shove, there's $259 in the pot. You have to call $90 more. The pot is laying you 2.9-1 odds. Against a range of overpairs, overcards and a flush draw, you're 40% to win. Getting almost 3-1, folding would be a terrible error. Call now and cross your fingers.

  • Call (87%)
  • Fold (13%)
