  • 6max NL Zoom 2c/5c Folding to river value bet. Negative EV?

    Hi there. This is quite a straight forward spot in some respects. I'm just wondering whether you think this is a +/- EV call in the long run? Cheers, Kevin.

    Hi CptKevUK!

    Reads on these two villains would be helpful here. AJo can be tough to play postflop, especially oop in a multiway pot. Yet, it is a strong starting hand in this spot. I would often squeeze preflop by 3betting 3x the original raise plus 1x for the caller making it 60c. This will often win the pot immidiately which is fine.

    As played, I think you played the hand fine. The villain called your c-bet, but he could have many Ax hands and pocket pairs that you are beating. Checking the turn looks good.

    On the river the villain bets 50% of the pot. You will need to be ahead at least 25% of the time for this call to be profitable. I would expect A6, A8, A9 and A10 as well as pocket pairs 88-KK plus some random air here often enough to make calling +ev. A read on the villain would help better determine his range.

    GL and have fun at the tables!
