      ---

      I did not know what to do since I do not have top pair or overpair on the flop. If I was the first to bet I would have bet 2/3 pot as a bluff. But in this case I decided to call his cheap bets instead.

      edit: now that I think about it, I only have 2 outs here. So calling was a mistake I guess.

      Calling is bad in SSS, thats what they say =) ..
      You should muck ur hand on the flop i guess, but i wonder if this min bet by him can be reraised as a bluff? Article tells us to fold though

      I would disregard such stupid 1BB bet and shove flop in his face, because you're remaining stack is too small for regular 2/3 c-bet.

      Hi kenthmp,

      Sticking to the basics will keep you out of trouble and the money you don't lose buys the same things as the money you won. A fold will keep you out of trouble as it seems very likely that he is holding the leathal A-rag.

      I think it depends on the opponent however. If he has an idea how you play and often min bets flops with an A or a flop with only rags then a standard continuation bet could get him to fold. He might think you have a better kicker with the A. Thinking players is however quite rare on NL10...

      Good luck

      Hey!


      Shoving it in his face means high variance but is often the best solution since I found folding flop weak and calling here gives away iniative (=bad)

      Just make a note what he does on the flop after you have shoved as a c-bet


      Sincerely,
      Gerv
