        67 suited
        Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
        had a question about this situation. was it a correct move to call the all in and go all in with 67 suited or not? i faced a situation like this before. i had a pare of ace, i bet 7bb preflop, one called me. in the dry flop i went all in and he called having 67 and needed two cards to complete his straight draw. in the turn and river he could complete his straight draw. i would like to know if my action was correct or not, and how i could act better. Thank You

              Hi mogharen! With 67s, I get a limp (the player that posted the blind), then a HUGE overbet shove. A standard raise for this opp would be to 3BB+1BB for each limper or 8 chips, but they bet 533. To call an overbet like this, I need to have a made, premium hand (QQ+) and I need to muck anything marginal. 67s is very marginal, so I need to fold this preflop here every time. I want to make all of my bets and raises standard, as that helps to conceal the strength of my hand. Players that bet more with better hands and less with marginal ones are basically turning their cards face-up to an observant opponent.. something that I want to avoid doing. Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

                  Big bet

                  Reasons a player may want to make a big bet

                  1. To put a lot of pressure on opponents
                  2. To bluff people off decent hands
                  3. To gain value from very strong hands
                  4. To protect against strong draws

                            Hi mogharen,

                            I will be your Hand Analyzer for this post

                            Our main consideration here is our stack size. I think with 38bbs we can definitely raise 99 OTB for value and cbet this board. I however would cbet 1/2 pot. Betting that small compared to the pot size will not accomplish anything. Here we want to get value from worse hands. like lower pocket pairs and draws and look to fold out hands that have some equity against us, hands that have overcards like AQ/KQ type of hands. Now OTT things get tricky, because hands that we beat, smaller PPs may now be reluctant to call twice but hands that beat us are always calling/raising Tx,Jx so in this spot we might want to take a pot control line. However, since we bet so small OTF we expect more hands to float and the turn puts out a few more draws out there so perhaps this would be a bet/fold spot and check back river like you did; I like that.
