Question

You're playing in a six-max game online. In this hand, you raise to $8 UTG and it's folded around to the big blind, who re-raises to $18 with $22 behind.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Raise All-in

Raise all-in. Against a short stacker you should have no problem getting a good ace like A-Q all-in. He probably has a small pair that you're racing with, but occasionally he'll have something stupid like A-J or worse.

  • Raise All-in (89)
  • Fold (11)

Question

You're playing in a live $1/$2 game. In this hand, Players 2,3,5, and the cut-off call and you check your option. Five players to an A 3 8 board. You bet $8 and Player 2 makes it $32. You raise to $115 and he calls. The turn comes T. You bet $200 and he calls. The river comes T.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Check-Fold

Check-fold. You were counterfeited by this terrible river and it really doesn't matter what he has here. He just isn't going to fold it for $240 in an almost $700 pot. Just check and fold.

  • Bet All-in (17)
  • Check-Fold (83)

Question

In a six-max game online, it's folded around to the aggressive but bad player in the small blind. He raises to $8 and you three-bet to $30. He calls and the flop comes A 3 5. He checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Check

The ace is obviously bad for your hand. If you bet, worse hands are rarely going to call. That, and you do have a redraw to the second nut flush. If you bet and are check-raised, you may be forced to fold - forfeiting your equity in the pot. So just check through, and if you can get this all the way to showdown you'll be laughing.

  • Check (71)
  • Bet (29)

Question

You're playing in a six-max game online. In this hand it's folded to you in the cut-off and you raise to $8. The button and small blind fold. The big blind calls. Your read on the big blind is that he is a very aggressive and competent player. The flop comes 8 5 7. The big blind tanks and then checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Check

This flop is good for you. You have second pair, a gut shot, and a backdoor flush draw. Your hand is most likely best now but you do not want to risk getting check-raise-bluffed off of it. So check through and play poker on the turn.

  • Check (37)
  • Bet (63)

Question

In your six-max game online, it's folded around to you on the button. You raise to $7 and the tight-aggressive but predictable player in the small blind three-bets to $27. The big blind folds and you call. The flop comes J 8 3. The small blind bets $38. You call and the turn comes 4. Your opponent shoves all-in for $145.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Fold

A predictable opponent is very rarely bluffing here. If you call a three-bet before the flop and then call his flop bet, he is going to think you have a hand. Predictable opponents just aren't going to two barrel all-in in a three-bet pot that often with a hand worse than yours. So fold.

  • Fold (70)
  • Call (30)

Question

In a six-max game online, it's folded around to you on the button. You raise to $7 and the tight-aggressive but predictable player in the small blind three-bets to $27. The big blind folds and you call. The flop comes J 8 3. The small blind bets $38.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

There is only one overcard to your hand. Your opponent may be three-betting a hand like A-Q or A-K that he would still c-bet this board with. Peel this flop and see what happens on the turn.

  • Call (46)
  • Fold (42)
  • Raise (13)

Question

In a six-max game online, it's folded around to you on the button. You raise to $8 and the solid regular in the small blind calls. The flop comes K T 4. He checks and you check. The turn comes the 6. He thinks then checks, and you check again. The river comes 9 and he bets $21.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

The river made you a set, but there is no need to raise. Your opponent is very unlikely to call you with worse. So just call and see a showdown and hope your three-of-a-kind is good.

  • Call (67)
  • Fold (18)
  • Raise (14)
