  • 2nl Zoom - KK in SB

    As good as zoom is I'm disliking how long it's taking to build up reads but oh well it has both good and bad points, anyway here is the hand...
    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    So no info on the villain at all he opens UTG for 6cents and it's folded round to me, I 3-bet to 18cents (in retrospect I think I should make it a little larger as I'm OOP); he flats and we take a flop. The flop comes Q high and looks pretty safe to me so I make a standard C-bet/Value bet 2/3 the size of the pot. The villain then raises and makes it around 4x my bet, this line looks very strong to me and I think his range consists mainly of hands that beat me such as sets he could possibly do this with AhQh. Also the SPR is around 5 a little high to be wanting to get stacks in, and I can't just flat his bet as there will be very little left behind. Against an unknown in a situation like this is it better to believe his aggression and make a disciplined fold, or could he be getting creative (surely the only bluff/missed hand he may do this with is AK)...? Thanks for any help. Oliver umbup:

    I am pretty inclined to go with it here.

    If we use that trust software called PokerStove to build an example range for him, like this:
    Board: Qd Th 5h

    equity win tie pots won pots tied
    Hand 0: 48.245% 48.19% 00.06% 10972 13.50 { KdKs }
    Hand 1: 51.755% 51.70% 00.06% 11771 13.50 { QQ, TT, 55, AhKh, AQs, KhJh, AQo }

    We can see that we still have 48% equity against a very strong range indeed. Sets galore and TPTK plus some very strong combo draws.

    I don't know much about this villain but I would think that he would often raise smaller sometimes with his sets, so that our equity against his range is probably much better than this. Of course if he ever raises the flop with other QX such as KQ/QJ we are in even better shape again. There is the possibility he has slowplayed AA to this point, but I think its about equal to him overplaying hands we crush that aren't in the above stove simulation. So I would put the money in and expect to turn a small profit.
