Question

You're playing six-max online. In this hand a regular raises to $6 on the button and you three-bet to $22 out of the big blind. He calls and the flop comes J 5 3.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Fire flop and turn

This board is good to c-bet though it's awful to fire one barrel. All hands like 99 or 88 are going to call the flop bet so if you give up after that you're just donating your flop c-bet and three-bet. If you fire the turn and sometimes the river your opponent will fold all but the best of his holdings. Firing multiple barrels is best.

  • Check/Fold (7%)
  • Check/Call (10%)
  • Fire one barrel (37%)
  • Fire flop and turn (45%)
