  • 2nl 2 pair call or fold?

    villain 13/7 AF 6/3/3 raise flop cbet 2/5 Looks silly now as it looks an awful lot like a set. Should I have folded to the flop raise? any chance calling the turn is good?

    - call on the flop looks ok for me. He could have Ax,Kx, straight draws, middle pair, etc.

    - a push on the turn looks too strong for me especially after a raise on the flop because there are not too many draws on the board even with a 2 pair and a taggy villain. A fold is possible

      Hi Pray,

      The villain is tight, so when he raises our flop bet this is very concerning. Especially since we have such a dry board, the only realy draw is QJ, but I don't think he raises us with a draw.

      I actually don't care for the c-bet. Vs a tight villain it's hard to get called by worse hands (even blind v blind) and no better hand will fold. I might check the flop then lead turn, where he will be more inclined to call with 2nd or 3rd pair because we checked a street. If we do c-bet, I think we should be bet/folding. Again, villain specific, but this is a player we'll make our money off of from stealing, not giving him action when he wants to play a big pot.

      Turn is definitely a bet/fold imo. We avoid giving a free card to AK/KQ/KJ/QJ. And when he shoves all in, coming from a tight player, it looks a lot like KT or a set imo, time to abandon ship.

        If we play the flop passively, we are inclined to CHECK/CALL with our top pair OTF. Should the turn be a float w/ bet/fold?

          When we turn 2 pair, I would shift gears to bet/fold. I want to make sure he's not checking KQ/KJ behind me, and feel comfortable folding to a raise from a tight player here.
