  • 25nl - TT. What is the best preflop action?

    The MP player has been playing ABC for the 53 hands he's been at the table. I haven't seen him showdown anything worth noting. His stats are 26/19/0 AF 6.0, He's cbet 1/2 times so nothing worth noting. The SB player is a big fish 73/07/0 AF 1.6 (30 hands). I'm unsure what the best option is here, flatting or 3betting. I think I like 3betting to around $2.50 but I'd like to hear what people think. If we flat we get in for cheap but we will have to x/c vs the MP player on a lot of boards since we risk being bluffed way too often. On the other hand 3betting will often isolate us vs the weak player and if the MP player 4bets we have an easy fold. When we get two calls we will be able to value bet pretty thinly as the fish will call us light and the MP player will give up when he misses. What do you think?

    I'm not calling, as I don't want them to get the opportunity of seeing the flop unless they pay
    I like to 3Bet here to $3.25 and we'll see the flop and then decide
    Why $3.25, get rid of at least one player and if they both fold, take the money and run.

    That's how I would of played it, not necessarily the right way

      Interesting hand, certainly 3 betting but I am not sure if I am folding to a 4 bet from villain 6. It really would depend on the sizing, and if the fish called/ shoved or folded.

      If he and/or the fish call I am also c betting nearly every flop.

      Cheers,

      TC

        Flat call for me, fish is too shallow to justify a raise.

          Hi Oli,

          I think it's a great spot to 3b and isolate on the 73/7 guy. I like to raise big here, like 3.50 to go, which really discourages the PFR from continuing in position on us, but the fish will be prone to call anyway being so loose. If he does, there'll be 7.75 in the pot with 6.50 behind, so we can get it in on most flops very comfortably.

            What do you do then when the flop has a J K Q or a A on if you start checking a reg is gonna take that pot away? The last ten hands or so i played at zoom where i was dealt pockets 10s i always get a flop with broadways on and my hand isnt worth anything then and i end up folding so il like calling with these sort of hands when two players atleast are in the pot so when the board comes AT7 and villain has TPTK i can take his stack or is there a way to make my tens more profitable?

              Luckily for us the only thing this opponent is regular at is calling.

              I am putting him all in on any board with a single overcard without hesitation, because he will rarely have hit that card with such a wide range AND he will stack off a lot of worse hands. That's what 73/7 guys are good at.

              Most boards will have 0 or 1 overcard. If there's 2, I still may put him in, or check behind sometimes and fold if he shoves the turn.
