  • 2NL $0.01/$0.02 Cash Game 6hAh

    Hi, Could you please analyze the play here, if i played it right? Actually, it's in my head that he's holding a K but my instinct said to call (Win/Loss). And the other thing, maybe he's just bluffing or made a flush with High Q..

    Hi opt,
    I would rarely call preflop here, A-rag plays poorly out of position without initiative. No reads were given, but if the button steals frequently then reraising is good. If not then just fold.

    Flop play is fine... V7's check indicates a hand of marginal value, or a big hand that is slowplaying (22,99,KK,K9). Betting the turn is ok but I think we need to make a bigger bet than the minimum, to put pressure on small pairs to fold.

    On the river we bet way too big, the size of the pot. Either he's got a very strong hand (flop slow play that beats us now) and will raise or a marginal hand that can never call this big a bet. This is too much pressure on a hand like A9 to get called.
    When he shoves all in, this is never a bluff over your big river bet sizing, he's got it. It's possible he makes a Q high flush, but there are very few combos of that he can have, maybe Qh9h or QhTh is about it, and many more combinations of full houses possible. We need to be right 34% of the time to make calling profitable, and I think the chances of that are slim, so this is a difficult but necessary fold.
