  • 10NL 6max Zoom #4 - marginal hands OOP

    #4 The villain is an unknown but at the time was playing 8 tables of zoom 6max. My question here is very simple. How do we play marginal hands like these OOP?? Can we call the river bet and have him show down a worse hand than our at least 25% of the time to make it a profitable call?

    We call preflop with baby pairs to set mine; since it's hard to play those hands OOP then the best plan is to be selective with our set mining and best to x/f if we miss. (unless we have a good read on our opponent and we can turn our hand to a bluff with a x/r) - Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    We bet turn with our fullhouse after villain checks flop, and we get called. I'd start ranging him as JJ,TT,99,88,77 or Ax looking to bluff catch. We check river, and he bets slightly less than 1/2 pot (with that sizing I'd discount bluffs from his range) with the 9 on the river It's less likely he has 99.
    22,33,55 would check back so he might be thin betting 77/88/JJ. I fold.

      Hi Tommy,

      I don't think we're good often enough here, we're going to be looking at hands ranging from 77-KQ an awful lot I think they way this played out. I wouldn't mind turning our hand into a bluff to get him off 77/88/TT/JJ, which normally is probably a futile effort but against someone who is 8 tabling zoom it may not be. As played it's a fold imo.

      Edit: An industrious line might be to check-raise vs. a known thin value bettor, who will bet JJ for value on the river. Again not normally against a 10nl random but vs. a zoom 8 tabler maybe.
