      5NL Ignition, (7 handed)

      BB - $3.22
      UTG- $3.85
      UTG+1 - $1.36
      LJ - $11.07
      HJ - $1.45
      CO (Hero) - $10.92
      BU -$6.02

      There is no SB in this hand, UTG limps 0.05, folds around to me, I isolate with :Ac: :Jh: to 0.25, BB folds and UTG calls.

      FLOP ($0.55): :Ts: :6d: :4d: (2 players)
      UTG checks, I check back

      TURN ($0.55): :2s: (2 players)
      UTG bets 0.25, I call

      RIVER ($1.05): :Ah: (2 players)
      UTG jams for 3.40, I fold

      UTG shows :6h: :5h: , should I be calling here despite the opponents huge shove?? In real time this really felt like he had a big hand and hoped I'd call because the :Ah: hits my range.

      What do you mean there is no SB? If this is no-limit holdem, one guy always posts the SB?

      After villain limp calls I would just cbet the flop like 40% pot. Limp callers often play fit or fold and will fold horribly much vs cbets. You have 2 overcards and backdoor gutshots too.
      Limp callers are usually passive guys. Now that he bets OTT we can probably think that he quite likely has something. If could be a draw of course but he could be betting any kind of pair here too. You have an A high and 6 outs to hit A or J, so I'm not sure if you should be calling there.
      Coming from a limper this line looks very strong. You would need to win over 43% of the time, which I don't think is easy. Folding OTR is fine imo.

      This happens sometimes on ignition when the SB leaves as the hand is being dealt, it’s weird, in the hand reviewer there was no SB.

      Call Fox Mulder, the truth is out there ! ;)
      The famous case of the missing SB. Something smells fishy here. 8-)


      Fine as played but you could also have cbet.
