Question

Aggressive six-max game online. You raise to $8 UTG. The cut-off, whom you know to play competent poker, calls. Flop is Q 7 8. You continuation-bet $14 and your opponent flat-calls. The turn brings the 9.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet

You have top pair, very good kicker. Your opponent has just called the flop once. He can still hold K-Q, Q-J, Q-Ts, etc. Bet this turn for value and play poker on the river.

  • Bet (70%)
  • Check-call (24%)
  • Check-fold (6%)

At Nevada68: No, if the guy is competent, he does NOT have JT here, unless it was specifically JTdd. Because competent players do not play gutshot draws when the betting is large, even in position, especially against only one player. a hand like 9Ts is possible here, as is maybe 65s if the stacks are deep, but in that case this is still more of a bet-fold line.

What about him holding J,10,----a very likely starting hand for a competent regular,what do you think?
