  • nl5 zoom, QTs set w/ flush draw on wet board

    no read on villain playing zoom PF: - 3bet villain as his minbet to steal from the button seems weak Flop: - cbet middle pair w/ flush draw. called minraise Turn: - played chk/raise shove to maximize my equity for a flush draw or boat and my current set Question: Was my check raise shove on the turn correct? Could have I played it much better?

    Hello,
    My first reaction on the T OTT was "wow, such a great card" , but after looking it more deeper I think it's the worst card it turned sets and JT into boats and you are drawing to just 3 outs or if he's got JJ are drawing dead . you are ahead just to over pairs but which over pairs would play that way? so if you look on the hand that way, what would you do OTT?

      Hi kalahwang,

      I think we got good enough equity, I would say something like ~65% to justify x/shoving the turn, against hands that would take that line: {QQ, JJ, 77, AhKh, AhQh, spews with AJ/KJ, JTs, 98s}. We need to be good 40% here with our money and because they bet the turn so big I think its also less likely that they would have a full house. So I think I like the play.

        I was thinking on the same line as Geovarta that he won't play a boat that way since it's almost the nuts and so he has to give me a good price to call with my draws and pairs as the line of min raise OTF and potsize on the turn is quite strong.


        How does both of us playing both around 150 BB should have affected my play?

          As for me charging draws OTT is a good idea , you won't pay anything OTR with missed draw. but I don't think his bet size is good there . you shoved interest in the hand so he is trying to get value . but even now I think your hand would have more equity without the T OTT.
