Question

Aggressive $10/$20 six-max game online, Folded to you in cut-off. You make it $70 to go. Big blind calls. Flop is 9 7 A. BB bets $100; you raise to $350 as semi-bluff and sort of extended c-bet. BB calls. Turn 8. BB checks; you check behind. River A. BB bets $500.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Raise all-in

The turn check most likely confused your opponent. You have a straight but the board is paired. It is unlikely that your opponent has a full house and if he does, so be it. Your hand is difficult to put you on, so you’ll likely get paid by any ace. Shove for value.

  • Raise to $1,000 (12%)
  • Fold (4%)
  • Call (26%)
  • Raise all-in (59%)
