Fold Equity (2) - Continuation Bet


Fold Equity (2) - Continuation Bet

by MiiWiin

In the previous part there was a lot about the basics of fold equity to discover and why it can be an advantage in every spot.

Mainly, fold equity will be of interest to you in a bluff. You can find out here how you can estimate it.


PartyPoker $25 NL Hold'em (6-handed)

Stacks & Stats
UTG ($25)
MP ($25)
CO ($25)
Hero ($25)
SB ($25) TAG
BB ($25)

Preflop: Hero is BU with 6c7c
3 folds, Hero raises $0.75, SB calls $0.75, 1 fold

Flop: ($1.75) AhKs9d (2 players)
SB checks, Hero bets $1.20, SB folds

This example is from the first part. The realisation was that because of the good flop, your position and your opponent the fold equity will be really high so the bet is +EV.

But these are just assumptions which apply roughly but definitely need to be researched more precisely.
