In Fixed Limit, you will very often find yourself in a situation where you passively defended your big blind with Ax or a pocket pair and then miss the flop or see three over-cards.
You cannot always play A-high c/f when you didn't hit a pair or only hit a draw (find more about this in the Platinum article "Heads-up on the Flop OOP: C/C Flop without Initiative - With Showdown Value"). Due to the many possible flops and the different ranges depending on opponent, position as well as your own hand, it is pretty much impossible to illustrate every conceivable situation.
This article will therefore focus only on the most difficult situations - playing pocket pairs and A-high with showdown value. Remember the following prerequisites for a flop call with showdown intention:
- 37% equity against a normal opening range
- 38-39% against smart turn betters
- 28%-29% after a 3-bet preflop
