  • 25NL 6-max zoom: AK in sb 2 bullets in 3-bet pot

    hi all, preflop: the utg open comes from a 35/27 player over 70hands. since calling on the sb doesn't seem all that appealing against this opponent, coz i would have to c/f most flop I decide to 3-bet for value and i get a call. flop: we get a nice dry Qhigh flop and I c-bet my standard here. the call from my opponent might mean i)has a queen ii) has an underpair to the QQ and doesn't believe us. turn: on a brick turn, I decide to fire a second bullet, to get him off the underpairs he might be holding n basically put him to a stack decision, coz with the sizing i choose there is not much money left on the river. river: as already stated I put him to a stack decision on the turn, so no reason to spew the rest of the money, since he's never folding here. 1. preflop, do u see any other profitable way of playing the hand? 2. on the turn, i suppose it is just a spew, right? since he opened utg i should put him (even though he's quite loose) on a stronger range n give him credit for a Q on the flop...

    Hi f1n,

    I like 3-betting pre here and c-betting the flop is fine. Not sure I would bet the turn though, the board is really dry so he rates to have a made hand of some sort that includes a fair bit of Qx holdings given the preflop action. And even if he was calling with a hand like 88, this turn card is not scary to him at all. We don't have enough sample size to get a good judge of went to showdown but I'm not optimistic he's just going to fold to a barrel. I would generally just give up there without better reads.
