      Hi!

      MP1 is a rock and UTG is a fish.

      Assuming that mp1 plays his monsters(TT JJ QQ KK AA AK) on that board probably the same way is it ok to go broke one turn. His call somehowe screams of strength but would he risk the same play with all of his monsters not just AK? Is it profitable in a log run to go broke on turn?

      Hi,


      I'd love to have a better grasp of MP1's game on the flop, since people will sometimes have transparent betsizing tells depending on whether their big hands can be outdrawn or not. Like they'd bet everything up to QQ close to pot because of the straight draws out there, yet they don't mind betting AK smallish because it looks invulnerable.

      If he is such a player I could find a fold on the turn, since it's possible the fish has a random 9 or AK sometimes as well.

      Otherwise if his flop c-bet size doesn't particularly mean anything, that means he could play anything from AQ up to QQ like that, all of which we beat and we're more often than not ahead/splitting with the fish as well, so you shouldn't pass up that spot by default.


      Hope it helps.
