  • Blind Verses Blind

    I've a couple of questions about this spot. With only 85 hands on my opponent his stats are 25/21/1.3
    1. Was the min-raise preflop a bad idea, should I have made it more?
    2. With both a flush draw and unlikely straight draw on the flop should I have bet more or took a different approach post-flop?
    3. My opponents re-raise on the turn signals he has a strong hand. Should I let go at this point or continue?
    4. If I do continue what's the best plan of action?

    I prefer larger sizing BvB because good players will recognise they should be flatting an absurd amount of hands given position and 3:1 odds.

    I'd bet more like $0.30+ on the flop because our hand is actually quite vulnerable on a board that smashes his flatting range.

    Turn is kinda meh. We probably have the implied odds to boat up so I think folding given the price we are getting is bad.

    If the board pairs then I think we should check because he'll bet with a straight, and hands he'd check back wouldn't call a donk bet anyway.

      Hey Paul,

      I do agree with a lot birdayy has already said, here's what I may add:

      1. I would suggest to experiment with pre sizings a lot. Find out how the average villain in your playerpool reacts to different raise sizes pre and see how you get along with that, i.e. what fits your game best in what you're trying to achieve. E.g. if people fold too much to small raises pre and are still build bigger pots with you postflop if you have a hand you should exploit that, especially against the blinds.

      2. Yeah, I'd bet at least 30c here. Any hand that villain continues with on a coordinated flop like this will most likely call 1bb more which makes you more money and builds a bigger pot.

      3. Against this size given the odds you can easily call

      4. +1 to checking, let him bet a straight or a bluff! Leading may look so strong after giving up the initiative.
