Question

You are playing in an online six-max game; in this hand, it’s folded to you and you raise to $7 from the cut-off. The button calls and the flop comes Q 3 J. You bet $11 and your opponent raises to $24. You call and the turn comes K.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet

You have a straight. You want to get value but if you check and then call you really have no idea where you stand. Also, if you check and raise, seldom are you going to get called by worse. So make a bet now and the rest of the hand will become easier for you to play.

  • Check-raise (28%)
  • Check-fold (10%)
  • Bet (62%)
