Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand a player raises under the gun to $8, and the cut-off and the button call. The small blind folds; you call and see a four-way 5 8 J board.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Bet

If you check there’s a high likelihood this flop will be checked through. This is a disaster for your hand because there are so many hands that will call a bet, but may not bet themselves. Also, there are a ton of cards that can come on the turn that either kill your hand or kill your action. In a multiway pot like this, where the preflop raiser is very unlikely to continuation-bet, you’re better off just donk-leading.

  • Check-fold (5%)
  • Check-raise (31%)
  • Bet (65%)
