  • 5nl zoom calling AJ oop

    17/17 13 hands First the flop, his betsize looked like he didn't hit anything, overpairs will bet bigger, draws too. Will you peel one off here? Then on the turn his betsize didn't change much but he is barreling nonetheless, I'm not sure what to put him on, it doesn't cooperate much with my flop read, he may be having some pair+draw, so would raising here be good in this case? River looked like a busted straight draw that saw a nice opportunity to bluff. I'm not sure what other hands can take this line here.

    Hi Pray,

    Firstly it's ok to fold prelfop imo. AJo doesn't play too well OOP without initiative here. If we knew we were up against a wider range, a call or 3b could be in order, but vs. an UTG open from a guy who's only played 2/13 hands, I don't rate him to be wide here.

    I definitely don't like peeling the flop OOP here... think about how the hand plays out on future streets... if we turn the best hand, it's hard to get paid, and if we don't improve we're lost and can easily be taken off the pot. If we feel he's missed or doesn't have much, this is a nice spot to check/raise as the board hits our perceived defending range much better than his UTG open range, and when he doesn't fold we rate to have outs to fall back on (he will probably fold AK/AQ immediately, and when he continues it will often be with a draw or JJ-KK, giving us as many as 7 outs to suck out).
