  • 2NL Second pair fails

    Had a terrible session which lasted only 20 minutes before I had dropped an entire stack across the four tables I was playing, thought I'd throw up the biggest losers (basically the only losers that contributed to the loss!) and see if I'm playing -ev or just got unlucky. No stats on this hand either as very few hands played. Flop is steal attempt, turn is value call, river I fold. Should I have done?

    Hi Jame,

    This one I would look him up. When we raised pre then checked back the flop, we look like just overcards. Villain won't expect the 9 to have hit us, so it's not unreasonable to see him betting many worse hands on the turn, both draws as a semi-bluff and worse made hands like 55, 88, 98, 78, 75, 65, etc. He probably doesn't think our hand is strong when we just call, and it's 2NL so he may be doing a bunch of nonsense reasoning, which leads me to feel like he can show up with both bluffs and worse made hands he thinks are winning in this spot... enough to call him for this price.
