  • Bottom set facing river overbet

    Hey guys, how would you play this one? Leading the flop will look more weaker than checkraising in my opinion. I represent sets and flush/straight draws on the flop. Turn calling is a headache : Im vs AQ,KJ and some slowplayed sets, but pot odds justify it so I see the river. On the river I think I'm beat most of the time. Where was my mistakes in this hand? Thanks in advance.

    Hi morduk,

    You haven't given reads, but I wouldn't expect a 2NL random to be ranging you so don't worry so much about what you think you represent (which I don't agree leading flop reps a set, it generally reps 1 pair hands and draws), just take the line to build the pot with a monster. To that end I would check/raise the flop here, I assume Mr. 4x UTG preflop is going to c-bet, and call with most of his range that connects with this board in some way.

    As played, I would call him... we've given no indication that AQ, AT, QT aren't good, and some players will overvalue AK here, peeling the flop, raising the turn to "see where he's at", then thinking he's winning when you just call his turn raise. I do think we'll be beat here a fair bit, but readless vs. a 2NL random, with the line we took and the way the hand played out, I'd make the call.
