  • NL2 Zoom AJ Flopped Nut Straight

    Didn't Have much info on him but it was a no brainer hand to me when i made that push. What could have i done ....? i'm getting similar bad beats everyday. Last week i flopped set of A's to lose to 4 of a kind 2's.

    I think I'd fold pre, as AJ doesn't flop so well, and you'll be out of position post-flop. As played, I'm check-raising the flop for value. Villain potted it, so he has a real hand. If you raise flop, villain probably stacks off there, but if he just calls, you can jam turn and get it in good.
    Villain is probably never folding a set, so you're doomed to go broke on this particular hand, but I'd avoid slowplaying in most circumstances.

      I completely agree with Arty here. You are in the small blind and will be out of position all hand. AJo makes for tough postflop play if you flop a pair since you won't be sure if you are ahead or not. I lean toward folding preflop. I would call with AJs though.

      As played, I would also check-raise the flop. At 2NL players will stack off with a ton of hands here such as sets, two pair and 1 pair hands with a straight draw. Even if you knew the villain flopped a set, he is only improving to a full house about 25% of the time with two cards to come. Try not to stress the result of this hand. You got it in way ahead and this will be extremely profitable in the long run.

      GL and have fun at the tables!
