Question

Again in a six-max game online, in this hand a loose-passive player raises to $8 from middle position and it’s folded around to you. You elect to call, and see a flop heads-up of K 4 Q.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet full pot

You’re out of position and you want to build a big pot. Check-raising may scream strength and cause your opponent to fold right away. You should bet out full pot into him and play poker from there. If he has nothing, he will fold and if he has something, you’ll begin to build the pot to play for his stack. Either way, betting is much better than going for a check-raise.

  • Check-raise (36%)
  • Check-fold (1%)
  • Bet half pot (37%)
  • Bet full pot (26%)
