Question of the Day

Question of the Day : No-Limit Hold'em – Tuesday, October 03, 2017

Your Hand
Small blind
Big blind


In this hand of your six-max game online a loose-passive player limps under the gun and you isolate him by raising to $8 on the button. The blinds fold and the limper calls. The flop comes Q 5 4 and your opponent bets out $12.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Call

Although raising against a decent player who donk-bets into you after raising might be right, against a loose-passive player it probably isn't. Loose players put in far too much money with dominated hands, so don't bother raising as a semi-bluff. Instead just call, hit your hand and then bet big, and you will make far more in the long run.
