  • 10 nl fr new table so heads up top pair weak kicker

    Should I have just folded the flop to his reraise?

    Hi,

    Did you have any specific reads about this villains tendencies? I'd presume this was a table starter heads up match, which usually means we have very little no reads at all.

    Let's start with pre-flop, we shouldn't be 3betting this hand read less, this is not a value hand nor is it a hand we want to play for stacks if we flop top pair and without reads we do not know how successful this play will be. Raising is only going to inflate the pot and we'll be at a positional disadvantage post flop which will make for difficult decisions...

    Post flop, I'd strongly consider bet>folding this hand,there is certainly a decent range of Jx that they'd flat our 3bet with pre-flop AJ KJ QJ JT J9 (16 combos of each hand) and AK KQ KTs are hands they may consider raising the flop with for value/protection. At best we are either calling hoping for a decent board run out to split the pot versus a better range of Kx, or hope they are trying to semi bluff to a draw which will account for such a small portion of their overall range.


    Hope this helps.


    Good luck and good decisions,
