  • Zoom FR A9s

    I do not think my opponent has an ace, because I think they would bet the flop, so I thought they slow played a set,I dont know what else makes sense. Thanks.

    Could be another ace with a second pair imho. He would be slowplaying A6 or A3 pretty much the same way he would slowplay a set. A set would make sense as well.

    If he has a really wide limping range (unlikely in Zoom) he could be spazzing with 45s, but that's pretty out there .

      In late position I would be isolating this player and raising it up to $0.08, with a hand like A5s and below I might limp behind to see a flop but with the 9 kicker I'm raising preflop.

      I'm also raising at least half pot on the flop and continuing on the turn.

      The river bet there I would call, with the passive line on this hand you look quite weak.

        ^^ All of this! 45 not that out there, the way this hand played. Also he could be getting stupid with just an ace. And a hand like 68 would fit as well. Raise preflop! One weak limper who we can isolate in position with a hand that is well ahead of his range. Seize the initiative, put pressure on the button to go away, and punish this guy for limping in with weaker hands. Limp would be ok over several limpers (raising wouldn't be terrible there either) but with only 1 limper in the pot, go ahead an raise him up in position with your strong hands (relative to his range). umbup: Dave

          ^^Yes, I was caught up in the preflop play and forgot this... definitely like continuing to bet on the turn, extract value from all his ace-rags and any draw he might have. And as played, I'd call his river bet too... your hand appears much weaker than it really is with the line you took, he can't be expecting you to call this size a bet, so disappoint him.

            Thanks for your replies.

            I understand what your saying about isolating the limper, I was using the PSO starting hand chart as a guide and it says call, but it groups A9s-A2s together and I know you cant just play poker from a chart.

            Thanks again.

              A chart is always a good place to start and will give you the basic idea of where to go, so that your not playing too many hands, or folding too many or overvaluing certain types of hand etc.

              But every poker player has their own style of play, and the art of winning at poker is to pick up on how opponents play, figuring out their styles and adapting to them.
