  • bet to find out?

    Hi, recently I was said no to be shy about publishing my hands. I'm a definition of poker bigginer and I keep running into situations like this one -
    Is there a way how to play differently/better with boarded overcard to my pocket pair?

    Hi Bakelants,

    When we have small to medium pocket pairs, sometimes we call a raise sometimes we re-raise ourselves, and other times we just fold. It depends on our opponent and on the depth of money.

    On the flop, there is no point in betting. We will fold worse hands and get called by better. I would take a check-call line to let our opponent bet his missed hands and then re-asses the turn card.

      If your opponent is on the tight or passive side, I fold pre as I prefer 20:1 implied odds as I am less likely to be paid off when I do hit.

      If they are reasonably aggressive I agree with the post above.

      Good decisions.
