Question

Online 6-max game, You raise under the gun to $7. It’s folded to the big blind, who comes along. Your read on him is he’s a solid LAG player. Flop Q J 7. The BB checks. You bet $12. He flats. Turn 3. He checks; you bet $30. He flats. River J. He checks.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Check through

This player, although he plays a LAG game, is not going to pay you off with any worse here. If he were a fishier player, you might be able to bet three streets for value. Since the stacks are deep I suggest you check this one through.

  • Bet (48%)
  • Fold (1%)
  • Check through (51%)
