Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand it’s folded around to you in the cut-off and you raise to $8. The weakish player on the button calls and everyone else folds. Heads-up to a 8 3 5 flop. You bet $15 and he raises to $45.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Raise all-in

Your opponent has less than 100BB, you have him labeled as weak, and you have two overcards and the nut flush draw. You are basically never folding with 15 outs versus one pair. So ship it all-in.

  • Fold (5)
  • Call (25)
  • Raise all-in (70)

Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand it’s folded to you on the button and you raise to $8. The small blind folds and the decent regular calls in the big blind. The flop comes J T 8 and your opponent checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Check

You have second pair and a gut-shot. Because of the texture of this board you are going to be often checking through here with a very wide portion of your button-raising range. As a result, you should also check through with some of your decent hands that have showdown value.

  • Check (32)
  • Bet (68)

Question

In this hand of a six-max game online, a very tight opponent raises to $8 from early position. You choose to flat-call in the small blind and you take a flop heads-up of T 5 3. You check and he bets to $14.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

Calling is by far the best option. If you raise, your opponent is rarely going to call with a worse hand. If you fold, you will be folding the best hand a lot of the time. So the best play is to just call and play poker on the later streets.

  • Fold (5)
  • Raise (79)
  • Call (15)

Question

You're playing in a cash game online. Player 2 limps as does the Cut-off. You raise to $10; the Blinds fold. Player 2 calls and the Cut-off folds. Flop A 8 9. Your opponent bets out $16.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Raise

With top set you should get your money in as soon as possible. Your opponent’s donk-bet could mean a number of things. It's usually a show of strength, and you have a monster. Jack it up now and hope to get it in.

  • Raise (70)
  • Fold (1)
  • Call (29)

Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand a very tight player raises under the gun to $8 and it is folded to you.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

There is no value in reraising. Your opponent is never going to call with worse. Call and let your positional advantage take control of this hand.

  • Raise (9)
  • Fold (29)
  • Call (62)

Question

In another six-max game online, this hand sees it folded around to the cut-off, and he raises to $8. You call and the flop comes A 4 9. He bets $14. Your read on the cut-off is that he is a tight-aggressive player who is good but not great and who plays fairly ABC.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

This is the type of board that your ABC-thinking opponent is going to c-bet 100% of the time. You have a great opportunity to call now and steal the pot on the turn when he checks to you.

  • Fold (66)
  • Call (14)
  • Raise (20)

Question

In a six-max game online it's folded around to you in the small blind. You raise to $8 and the big blind calls. The big blind is a decent regular with whom you have some history. The flop comes 8 7 9. You bet $16 and he raises to $45.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Re-raise

In a blind vs. blind situation your opponent may choose to raise this flop with a very wide range of naked draws, combo draws, or even worse two pairs. Your hand is too big to fold now, so raise and expect to get it in and have to dodge some cards.

  • Re-raise (65)
  • Fold (8)
  • Call (27)
