  • 2nl 6max zoom Raise Turn Or Too Results Orientated?

    Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner
    Hi Everyone, Was i right to be a little mad at myself for not raiseing the turn for value here? or am i being to results orientated? The villian here had stats of 23/19 and an utg raise% of 22. I flat called the turn because i wanted to get river value from worse hands on all the non diamonds that come down,i dont think many worse hands are staying in if i raise the turn on a flush card. Obviously the river cards awful but most of the time as i said a non diamonds coming down and i most likely get value Thanks for your help

    Hi Nashy,

    Play up to the turn is fine imo. I would raise the turn for sure here. First I do think we can get value from a lot of hands in the villains range on the turn. What's his range here? All indications are that he's strong, 4x UTG, pot flop, pot turn. So his range is probably something like JJ+, 9d9x, 88, AdKx/AdQx, and made flushes (mostly AK/AQ/AJ/KQ). We are destroying that range (80/20 favorite roughly) and he will have a hard time folding most of it. Even overpairs, 2NL players don't like to fold premium pairs. Especially if he's got the premium diamond.

    There are so many action killing river cards, I think it's prudent to try for the action right now. A diamond either beats us or kills our action (except for the 3d which doesn't beat us but could still kill action). Additionally a 7 or 9 will look scary as will any overcards to a pair... like if he's got QQ, then an A or K also may freeze him.

    River I would fold tbh, it just seems unlikely with how many flushes should be in your range here that he wouldn't have it. I would expect him to show KdKx or AdAx a lot here.
