Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand you raise to $8 under the gun and are called by a fish in middle position. The cut-off folds and the button makes it $25. The blinds fold. What do you do?

Scenario

Correct Answer: Fold

It’s going to be very difficult to play this hand out of position on the flop. Combine that with the fact that you raised UTG and your opponent knows that and still re-raised means you are probably dead. Fold this hand and move on.

Fold (52%)
Call (33%)
Raise (16%)
