  • 10nl 6max, a pair and an open-ender... continue?

    just sat down, so no reads on villain i decide to call with pocket 99 in BB. flop comes coordinated, with a str8 draw(or made str8) and two suits. oppo makes a half pot bet. probably my pair is no good, but i have an open-ender. the thing is that i dont know if 7h and Qh are clean outs. so, what is the right play here? fold, call or raise? in case i had continued(called or raised) and the turn was the 7h or Qh, what should i do?

    Hi Espada,

    I would call after checking, but also think it's advisable to generally lead out here rather than check to the raiser. This is a board texture where a pfr may check behind us quite a bit with AK/AQ and we don't really want them to take a free card, while at the same time if they have a strong one pair hand it's hard for them to raise us as bloating the pot with their pair on such a coordinated board becomes pretty spewy.

    At any rate the bet sizing doesn't say overpair to me, less than half the pot on a wet board tends to say "I'm following through because I feel like I have to, but I don't like it much". So I feel like we're ahead a fair bit right now.

    If we make it with the 7h or Qh I would proceed as though we have the best hand, not worried about the flush here as there's very few combos of 2 hearts in his range and the c-bet is kind of small for a semi-bluff.
