Question of the Day

Question of the Day : No-Limit Hold'em – Thursday, July 24, 2014

Your Hand
Small blind
Big blind


In your six-max game online Player 2, a regular, raises to $8. You call on the button and a fishy player calls in the big blind. The flop comes K 5 8. The fish checks and the raiser checks. You bet $10. The fish folds and the regular calls. The turn comes 7 and the regular checks. You bet $30 and he once again calls. The river comes 2. He checks.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet

It's very unlikely your opponent has a king. With a fish in the blinds he's going to bet the flop for value almost 100% of the time. It's more likely he has something like Q Q. Furthermore, because your bet sizing was so weak on the flop and strong on the turn, it may seem like you picked up a draw. Bet $65 for value and if your opponent is stubborn and thinks you missed your draw, he may look you up.

  • Bet (30%)
  • Check (70%)
