Question

In this hand of a six-max game online a loose player in middle position raises to $8. Another loose/bad player calls on the button. The tight/winning player in the small blind calls and you call. Flops A A 7. SB checks, you check. Both original raiser and button check through. Turn Q. SB bets $20. You call; original raiser folds. Button calls. River K. SB bets $80.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Call

You have a full house, true, but you have to look at the small blind's range. He called a raise in the small blind and checked the flop along with everyone else, then bet into three people on the turn. When called in two spots, he bet big again into both players. You have a full house but against this type of action there’s no point raising - he is repping a huge hand. That, and there is another player to act behind you. Although he's repping a monster, you obviously aren't ever going to fold, so just call and hope for the best.

  • Raise all-in (38)
  • Fold (17)
  • Call (45)

Question

In another six-max game online, in this hand it’s folded to the fishy loose player on the button. He raises to $8 and you call in the big blind. Heads-up to a K K A flop. You check and he bets $14. You call and the turn comes K; you check and he bets $40.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Raise all-in

It looks like your opponent has an ace, meaning he has kings full of aces. He isn't ever going to fold, so just shove all-in and wait for the chips to be sent your way.

  • Raise small (61)
  • Fold (1)
  • Raise all-in (39)

Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online, and in this hand you raise to $8. A tight, solid but unimaginative player calls in the small blind. The flop comes Q 6 7; he checks and you bet $14. He calls and the turn comes J. He checks; you bet $30; he check-raises to $100.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Fold

A tight, unimaginative player is absolutely never going to be bluffing in this spot. He has you beat - his most likely hand is a set. So fold now and save your stack.

  • Call (15)

Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand it's folded to the button, who is a very aggressive, winning regular with whom you have history. He raises to $8 and you three-bet to $34. He four-bets to $72.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Raise all-in

An opponent like this, one you have history with and you know plays ultra-aggressive, is quite capable of four-betting both big hands and bluffs. In this scenario you have no choice but to get it in with so much money in the pot already. Raise all-in and hope for either a fold or an ace or king.

  • Raise all-in (77)
  • Fold (9)
  • Call (14)

Question

In a $1/$2 game online it’s folded to you on the button and you raise to $8. The small blind folds and the very tight big blind calls. The flop comes J 4 9. He checks and you bet $13. He calls and the turn comes J. He checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Bet-fold

Even though your opponent is tight and the top card paired, there is still value in betting this turn. The BB may call a second street with T T, or he may even have a hand like Q Q. Either way a bet on the turn is your best bet … although if he raises, it’s an easy fold.

Question

You’re playing in a $1/$2 six-max game online, and in this hand it’s folded to you on the button. You raise to $8. The small blind folds and the average big blind calls. The flop comes 6 9 Q; he checks and you bet $13. He calls and the turn comes 2. He checks and you bet $36. He calls and the river comes 5. He checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Bet all-in

The flush card hit, but that doesn't mean he has a flush. A decent player is usually going to fold a naked flush draw on the turn. This makes his most likely holdings queens, with K-Q and A-Q being the most obvious. You built the pot big enough to get your stack in, so get it in and hope he hero-calls you with his queen.

  • Bet $40 (35)
  • Bet all-in (17)

Question

You’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand you raise to $8 under the gun and it’s folded to a solid player in the big blind. The flop comes 8 5 3. He checks and you bet $13. He calls and the turn comes J. He checks.

What should you do?



Correct Answer: Bet

The J is a good second-barrel card. Your opponent’s range mostly consists of pocket pairs that are peeling the safe flop. The turn brings an overcard as well as a three-flush. Not only that, your bet is really only a semi-bluff, since you have the A. Bet the turn and expect a fold most of the time.
