  • 10NL 6max bottom set

    2nd hand of the dude, first hand he folded..
    smells like 55 or A4..
    can this be a slowplayed overpair?

    fold or shove?

    my first thought was to fold actually

      Hey Sjekkkk,

      I think you can make some strong arguments for folding bottom set on a dry board texture that doesn't really allow for many worse hands or bluffs people would typically tend to raise.

      However, I think I would still not feel comfortable making that kind of fold against an unknown who doesn't have a full stack. He could well be a recreational player after all who flats stuff like 52 suited pre and thinks it is the nuts postflop. And as you say, sometimes people may show up with a slowplayed overpair here.

      You should still have reasonable equity against a range of higher sets, straights, some two pair and some slowplayed overpairs as well as the occasional stuff like a low Ax/44 that turned a pair + straightdraw and gets turned into a semibluff.

      If this spot was played out with deeper stacks I think I would call turn and re-evaluate on the river.
