  • 10NL Button vs SB

    Hi all, I was not quite sure if this could be an overplay of my hand. Stats for only 15 hands: 20/20/3 50 steal(4 hands) Regarding the steal percentage, that's not much to find out if he steals much but nevertheless I don't wanted to flat my A8s. I did think in the hand he has a very wide button range probably, but not sure of what his 3bet calling range might be. I flopped middle pair great kicker, think a cbet is in place on the flop and did want to tripple barrel. But then his turn raise.... TJ could be in his range any pairs but then I expected he raised the flop. Turn pot of 13 dollar and need to call 6, wise to call? Ferdy

    Hi ferd,

    Yes, I think you overplayed your hand here.

    Preflop looks fine, restealing vs. a possible wide button open, A8s can be defended by calling but it plays much easier reraising the wide steal and punishes him for stealing.

    I don't mind c-betting the flop since we 3b pre, but once we get called, I would slow it down. We can't really expect to get value from worse hands by barreling here, so maybe check and call a bet instead. When you bet and get raised all in on the turn it's the exact kind of spot we don't want to be in... we can only beat a bluff, and even semi-bluffs have reasonable equity so when we're ahead, we're often not crushing.
