Question of the Day

Question of the Day : No-Limit Hold'em – Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Your Hand
Small blind
Big blind


True to form, you’re playing in a six-max game online. In this hand you raise to $8 from early position. A loose player calls in the cut-off and a TAG calls on the button. The blinds fold. The flop comes 4 9 8. You bet $20; the cut-off calls and the button raises to $80.

What should you do?

Correct Answer: Fold

A good TAG is not reraising in this spot with anything you beat, especially after the cold caller in the middle. He likely has a set or a flopped two pair and you are miles behind. Best-case scenario, he has a combo draw and you are maybe 50% to win, but that is a small portion of his range. Fold now and watch what he turns over when the fish calls.

  • Fold (31%)
  • Call (15%)
  • Raise all-in (54%)
