Question

Online 6-max game. Under-the-gun player raises to $12. Your read is he plays far too many hands pre-flop and is aggressive after the flop. You re-raise on the button to $55. He flat-calls. Everyone else folds. Heads-up to K T 3 flop. He checks; you c-bet $110. He check-raises to $300.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Call flop/call turn

This is the best way to play this hand. If your opponent is bluffing, flat-call now and let him bluff the rest of his chips off on the turn. If he does have a hand, well, you’re getting it all-in anyway, so you may as well wait for the turn. All raising the flop does is fold out potentially worse hands. So flat-call this flop and get him to shove the turn.

  • Call flop/call turn (18%)
  • Fold (2%)
  • Call flop/fold turn if you don't improve (4%)
  • Raise all-in (75%)
