Question of the Day
Question of the Day : No-Limit Hold'em – Tuesday, January 27, 2015
- Your Hand
- Big blind
Later stages of a live tournament and it’s folded to you in the small blind. You raise to $1,200 with 8♣ 8♠. The big blind calls. Your image is tight but loose with late-position opens. The BB is a standard TAG on the looser side. He's aware of your image. Flop is Q♠ Q♥ 5♥. You bet $2,000. He instantly shoves for $5,500 total.
What should you do?
Correct Answer: Call
Your opponent is unlikely to play a queen like this. This is most likely a complete draw or a flush draw at very best. With $2k invested it only costs another $3,500 to see a showdown. Even if you lose this hand you are in decent shape. So make the call and expect to be ahead.

He very well could be playing A,Q,----or possibly wired 5's----or wired J's---just a thought,---I read these little questions every day and I have to say I don't agree with a lot of the answer's given.---Thank You
