Question

Playing in a six-max game online, in this hand it’s folded around to the cut-off. He raises to $8. You choose to flat-call on the button because there is a super spewy player in the small blind. He ends up calling, and the big blind folds. The flop comes 7 2 2. The fish checks and the cut-off c-bets $20. You think you have the best hand.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

Now if you think you have the best hand versus the cut-off, you should almost always call. If you think he is c-betting with a good portion of his range on this dry board, then it’s completely fine to just call. Reason being, that fishy player may just spazz out and attempt to bluff. So if you think the TAG in the hand is not a big deal, focus on maximizing your value from the bad player.

  • Raise (33)
  • Fold (35)
  • Call (32)

Question

In a six-max game online, in this hand you raise to $8 and a very tight player calls in the small blind. The flop comes A 4 J and the tight player checks. You bet $14. The tight player calls; the turn comes 2 and he checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Check

Against this type of player (a super tight one) a second barrel is seldom going to work. For him to call a middle-position raise when in the blinds, his worst hand is A-Q once he calls the flop. He is not going to fold for a second barrel, nor will he for a third. So just check now and attempt to get a free card.

  • Fold (1)
  • Fire a second barrel (35)
  • Check (63)

Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand the decent regular in the cut-off raises to $8 and a fish calls on the button. You three-bet to $35 and they both end up calling. The flop comes 4 7 8.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Check-fold

Although you three-bet before the flop for value, that doesn't mean there is any value in betting this flop. You aren't ever getting called by worse and seldom are you folding better. It sucks, but you have to just check and fold.

  • Check-fold (42)
  • Check-call (12)
  • Bet (46)

Question

Folded around to you on the button in this hand of a six-max game online. You raise to $8. The fish in the small blind calls and the big blind folds. The flop comes 8 9 3. The fish checks and you bet $18. He calls and the turn comes A. The fish donk-bets $30.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Raise all-in

Your opponent most likely has Ax with the ace of clubs. He thinks his aces are now good, and he has the draw to go along with it. Shove it all-in now and expect to dodge a couple cards.

  • Call (35)
  • Raise all-in (58)
  • Fold (8)

Question

Live $1/$2 game at your local casino. Players 2 and 3 limp and the very good Button raises to $15. You choose to flat in the SB. Player 2 calls; Player 3 folds. Flop 8 5 4. You check; so does P2. Button bets $40. You call. P2 folds. Turn J. aYou check. Button bets $85. You call. River 2. You check. Button shoves for $240.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Fold

You’re practically never good here. Your opponent is representing a very big hand after betting into two people on the flop and firing again on the turn and river. He probably has at least aces or kings, and more likely a set or a straight. So just fold.

  • Fold (64)
  • Call (36)

Question

You’re playing in the early stages of an online tournament. In this hand it’s folded to the cut-off, who makes it $75. You make the call and the blinds fold. The flop comes J 3 5 and he bets $100.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

You have a pair that is better than second pair, and there’s no reason to believe your hand is no good right now. This is an easy continuation-bet board for your opponent, so make the call and see what happens on the turn.

  • Fold (25)
  • Call (41)
  • Raise (34)

Question

In another six-max game online, it’s folded to you and you raise to $7. The button and small blind fold and the tight but good big blind raises to $24. You choose to call in position, and the flop comes 8 5 2. The BB bets $35 and you call. The turn comes 6 and he bets $70.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Fold

Unless you have solid reads that your opponent can fire two-barrel bluffs in a three-bet pot, you’re best off folding here. He is never value-betting less, so every penny you put in the pot is a donation. Fold now.

  • Raise all-in (23)
  • Fold (65)
  • Call (12)
