Question

Late stages of an online MTT. Play has been aggressive w/ many steals and resteals. It’s folded to your active opponent who raises to $600 from the button. You call in the big blind. Flop T 8 3. You check; your opponent bets $1,000.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Raise all-in

Your aggressive opponent's range is very wide at this point. You have two overcards and a gut-shot straight draw. Your move is a very aggressive semi-bluff to resteal the pot from your opponent. He will likely be forced to fold a huge part of his range, and if he doesn't you still have a hand that has some equity. Ship all-in - expect a fold!
