      I am not sure if i should reraise directly again on flop or checkraise the turn since i also hold the ace of spades.

      Tough decision on river... Call , fold ? Any point in reraising?

      Not sure about the river call. Bet/fold a better line there?

      Whats the most profitable line here ? Bet again on turn in order to go all in on river , or check behind and hope to induce a bluff or a weak call on river?

      Did i overplay this ? Opponent has rather tight stats and he reraised me preflop. I probably wont get my reraise called with a worse hand but i also dont wanna see another club or an ace/king.

      1)Make a PSReRaise (about an extra $50) on the flop as plenty of Q's are in his range. Villain might well put you on AA/KK.

      Although weaker Q's may still pay you off, c/r ing the turn here is a bit strong after the third :spade: . This villain will draw to a lot of flushes that aren't the nuts.

      2)I'd make an oversize raise PF and hope that CO had a real hand so he could punish me for my "obvious Sqeeze-play". About $30.

      NH as played. There is no way of escaping this one.

      3)If villain likes to limp/call PF then he may hold plenty of weak K's here and you could raise for value. If villain is a "passive SP type"(with big hands) then calling may be better.

      4)Bet fold is terrible on river there. I'd call that river bet too.NH.

      5)You still have 100BB behind and a monster hand on the turn. Betting is fine here IMO.NH.

      6)Assuming button holds a big Ace or TT+ then he is very unlikely to be holding two clubs. Your big c/r is chasing out everything but the hands that you beat (possibly not JJ). Why not min-raise to see if you can tease some extra money from lesser hands? Flat-calling and leading the turn risks a free-card with no extra money in the pot.

      Hand 1) nice hand. I like this line.

      Hand 2) No. I would bet only 3/4 pot (=$30) on the flop and check/fold the turn. You don't beat many hands here.

      Hand 3) nice hand. I definitely don't see a fold with Top two pair here. A raise is close and depends on the opponent.

      Hand 4) I would bet more on the turn because of the drawheavy board and check/fold the river. Against two opponents TPTK isn't good anymore.

      Hand 5) "Play big pots with big hands and small pots with small hands" For this reason the turn bet is ok. Since you both are deepstacked you want to build a big pot and move all-in on the river.

      Hand 6) nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      Hand 1) nice hand. I like this line.


      Why? I am probably looking at things a little simplistically but how can not 3-betting when we are a big favourite on the flop be inferior to c/ring 100BB into a 45BB pot on the turn when we could be a big underdog?

      Hand 6) nice hand!


      Don't we force villain to play his hand correctly in this spot? What do you see as villain's likely range? I would appreciate some clarification here.



      Thanks,

      Nunki.

      Hi Nunki!

      In Hand 1 we are still favourite against Qx and two :spade: cards, as you can see here:
      Equilator:
      89.039.291 games processed in 05:50 minutes.

      Board: Qs Qh 3s 2s


      Equity | Win | Tie | Loss | Hand
      Player 1: 54,690% | 51,886% | 5,607% | 42,507% | AsQc
      Player 2: 45,310% | 42,507% | 5,607% | 51,886% | AsJs, KsJs, KsTs, Ks9s, Ks8s, Ks7s, Ks6s, Ks5s, Ks4s, QJo, QTo, Q9o, Q8o, Q7o, Q6o, Q5o, Q4o, Q3o, Q2o, JsTs, Js9s, Js8s, Js7s, Js6s, Js5s, Js4s, Ts9s, Ts8s, Ts7s, Ts6s, Ts5s, Ts4s, 9s8s, 9s7s, 9s6s, 9s5s, 9s4s, 8s7s, 8s6s, 8s5s, 8s4s, 7s6s, 7s5s, 7s4s, 6s5s, 6s4s, 5s4s

      And in Hand 6 I think villains range is 99+, AJ+, KQs. Against this range we are a 70-30 favourite as you can see here:
      Equilator:
      17.108.474 games processed in 01:28 minutes.

      Board: 8c 2c 2h

      Equity | Win | Tie | Loss | Hand
      Player 1: 70,660% | 70,056% | 1,207% | 28,736% | QhQs
      Player 2: 29,340% | 28,736% | 1,207% | 70,056% | 99+, AJ+, KQ

      By playing check/raise here we get a continuation bet from hands like AJ, AQ, AK which would simply fold to a donkbet. If we would bet here, we could easily get raised by 99, TT, JJ and fold because we don't know what we are up against.
      That's why I think a check/raise is the best play here.

      Thanks Pushkin for your considered reply.

      We must be something like a 7:3 favourite on the flop in hand 1). A good time to jam?

      In hand 6) I didn't advocate a bet but a smaller c/r or possibly a c/c. C/r-ing AI (effectively) turns our QQ into a bluff(23o) and allows villain to play his hand perfectly.
      MHO.
